The museum is found by walking through the shops and cafes at the port of Alonissos - up the stone steps and it takes you to the entrance of the museum.

It cost us 4€ each and was well worth it.

The museum was open from 11am to 6pm and has 3 floors of things to see that cover the history of Alonissos including the pirates of the Aegean exhibition and the National memory room.

The exhibits downstairs covers the traditional crafts and occupations that are in danger of disappearing.

This museum is well worth a visit and is a hidden gem - so much is contained in the exhibition cases for you to see.

Clearly a labour of love. Good range of exhibits, neatly grouped with clear labels and explanations. A great way to spend some time on a hot afternoon. And who doesn’t like a museum with a pirate section?!

Finally, on our 5th visit, we made it to the museum. Excellent well-presented displays over 3 floors in air conditioned comfort. Particularly liked the examples of piratical armaments from the area.

We visited this small but beautiful building on our last day in Alonissos. Visiting museums is not the usual thing to do on an Aegean island. However, we were pleasantly surprised by this place and wish we had more time available to see everything in detail.
We were expecting a cultural, folklore museum, and it definitely was that. It had a well done floor on how the locals used to live over the past few centuries. But there were other surprises. There was a small, packed , very well designed section on all the Greek wars of the 19th-20th century, with minute details, and thousands of artifacts from allied and axis armies, even including pieces from crashed aircraft and tanks.
There was also an incredibly complete section on 16th-19th century pirate life, better than anything I have ever seen in other museums. I have no idea where all these items came from, but they are well displayed, marked and described. And there was a section full of anything relating to old cameras and photography. If you are on alonissos and have any interest in the past wars, pirates or even photography, do not miss this place.

If you want to know about Alonissos, its history and stories, have a look at this museum. It is unique and the collection is put together with a lot of care.

Worth a visit (especially if it is raining!) A varied selection of things to look at, the wartime exhibits were particularly interesting. The 'history of photography' was also interesting although not up to date. There is a changing art exhibition, also an outdoor terrace café with lovely views.
