The atmosphere was so good in the cottage it felt peaceful and it was so interesting to see how people lived and worked. The sleeping area looked so comfortable and the family photographs are such a nice touch a wonderful museum.

it is a great effort by a non profit organisation, on the seafront, admission fee is cheap & is worth a visit, in order to see some of "old ways" of Kardamena !

Not bad, but I thought it was a bit boring and I found the lack of being able to buy water on side a bit dissapointing. Plus I did not think there were too many things that were that historically significant.
