Been there 3 times during summer. and i would go again in any chance. The museum, actually Bouboulina's home is small, but so well kept! The staff that narrates you the story is so dedicated, probably all of them are Bouboulina's Family members and theis narration is breath-taking. They give you historic information more than just Bouboulina's lifestory. The last... More

If our teachers taught us the greek history in a half as interesting way as this guide, we would have loved it. Besides, they even let us carry our small dog inside the building, which proves their admittedly very high cultural level. Congratulations.

This museum is housed in the original residence of the heroine of Spetses. Bouboulina raised her own navy, paid for it and captained the ships and went to war. Seeing this house and hearing the stories is a great way to learn the local history

I am thrilled to have attended this museum's conducted tour. The guide not only has a deep knowledge of history but also he is not afraid to communicate even things that Greek history books choose not to mention in order to make history more appealing and inspire feelings of patriotism. He does an excellent job and shows his love to... More

I have visited this museum as a teenager but also as an adult with my daughter. Tina who was our guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgable you couldn't help but to... More

Don't miss it If You are fond of the past and it's untold history. A mansion full of energy, able to travel the visitor back to the glorious days of Spetses island in the years of the Greek revolution! Wonderful and majestic guide! Buy cheap tickets which help with the restoration of the 300 year old building! Giorgos, Athens, GR
