“If it's open, go visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

This place is a tiny gem. The site is the location of an old family compound, and you can see and imagine how they must have lived on the island years ago. The "curator" we met was very friendly and eager to explain it all to us. The stop doesn't take much time and it is definitely worthwhile.

“Facinating. It's great to see the artefacts that explain recent history of the island.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

My wife Annemieke & I had hired a quad/ATV bike for our first day on Folegandros so that we could see many of the sights of the island & on our way back from the top end of the island we arrived at opening time & we amazed at the stuff that had been saved from extinction. A lovely "older" local lady Katherina assisted by a multilingual Athens doctor in training explained in 3 languages to a small group of non Greeks about the artefacts from the last 150 to 200 years.

Congratulations to the organisers for arranging the pieces into a very interesting delay. We bought a small book explaining the items and the history of what was an operational farm & home about 100 years ago.

We plan to visit the island again in 2011 with 1st time friends & the heritage centre is a must see.
