A great insight as to how the island people lived in times gone by, before the tourist dollars arrived. The lady at the entrance is extremely knowledgable and gives a great insight into how Lena and her family lived in the house. Still don't know how they managed to burn a brazier indoors, with no chimney! Free entrance but please... More

We intended to visit Lena's House but stumbled across it by chance and you very easily walk past it. I think the staff are volunteers but are clearly committed to the house, its history and want to share it. The lady who showed us round was full of information and after we got over the awkwardness of being the only... More

Interesting to see a home the way it used to be. Especially because everything around her house are more or less stores, bars, clubs and hotels from the 21st century. I think more people would find their way into it if there was a sign of some sort, it kind of disappears in all the noise surrounding it.

At first you're like...."umm IS this a museum? or some crazy lady sitting in a room with her door open.." It is a museum of how Mykonian houses look on the inside back in the day. It's a good 6 minute activity while you are strolling about.

An authentic feel of what it must have been like to live in Mykonos before the tourist era! A grandmother's world. Lots of interesting pictures and furniture - but don't walk on the wooden floor and stay on the carpet! Also, if you ask the lady of the house where the kitchen is, you may as well know just about...

Right next door to the Maritime Museum is "Lena's House" bequeathed to the Town on her death. It is a perfect microcosm of 19th Century life in Mykonos and worth a 10 minute visit. Entry is free and it is open in the evenings only (June 2014).

I guess I knew what I was going in to see but its really just a couple of rooms (small) with furniture from a bygone age. It's interesting to go and see and as it is free and on one of the main streets there is really no excuse not to pop in.

Lena's house is located right near the Maritime museum and just like the museum, you can easily miss it as is on this busy street with lots of shops around it.
