Bouboulina’s Museum is family-owned and since opening in 1991 has been visited by over 500,000 people, who have been moved by the fascinating story of this heroine of the Greek War of Independence. We offer tours to independent travelers and we can also accept (with prior confirmation) groups of up to 100, at a time suitable to the requirements of the group itinerary. In our beautiful garden area, visitors read a brief history of Bouboulina’s life (available in 18 languages **) before entering the Mansion itself where the tour inside is then conducted in English: we are flexible regarding on the spot translating by your group leader into another language.In the grounds of the Mansion there is a three-hundred square metre pebble-mosaic courtyard, with olive trees and abundant flowers and shrubs, where we hold our Cultural Festival each summer with events such as opera, theatre, dance, children's theatres, modern song, piano and violin. Entrance to the Festival is free - any donations are used for various causes on the island.** Languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish

A whirlwind tour but interesting nonetheless. Some interesting items but I would liked to have seen more about how they lived in house.

Tells an amazing story about a remarkable woman. Cost of entry is reasonable and allows the museum to survive.

Excellent museum and tour in which we learnt so much about the history of the island. Good for young and old as it's not a long tour and minimal walking. Highly recommended!
