A few, well presented rooms of wall art. Although they are photo-reproductions you would never know. Essential viewing if you've been to Arkotriri
I guess I gave it 5 stars purel because of it's location: the most beautiful location for a museum in the world as it is set on caldera in this very beautiful old house. However the money I paid at the entrance were money down the drain: very little exhibits and these are reproductions. I guess they still give you... More
My wife and I liked all the pieces, especially those which we knew learning history. Myself being an Italian I really loved the Greek-Roman pieces.Don't miss it.
Visit only if you aren't visiting the originals at the Museum of Prehistoric Thira or the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. This site is made of tourists and is 5 Euros each. Well done but small.
