The museum connects island's past and present throught the private collection of a provost familly; Cloth, furniture, books, tools, arms and some very rare and important documents from the Greek Indipendence War against the turks. A small ticket of 2 euros.Strongly recommended.

Just go there and commune quietly with Anastasia (the owner). There is too much to describe and too much to 'feel' - so using few words cannot do it justice - JUST GO THERE!!!!

I loved the house, an old family house adapted to the first museum of local culture and history in modern Greece. The textiles and objects were fascinating, as was the exhibition of the materials compiled by the current proprietors' father in the war in Asia Minor in 1921 -23. A tragic time. Well worth a visit!

We liked very much the historical section, related to the early 20 th century minor Asia war? The architecture and decoration of the building were also very nice
