If you are walking, then it is a climb to reach this museum. However, the reward is magnificent views as cross the town and its harbour. This museum has large rooms with high ceilings and large windows which helps the air flow. It is very comfortable inside. The most impressive part of the collection is the clothing and fabrics. Beautiful.

Glad we saved this to do after the first couple of days of getting used to "climbing".
There are many uphill climbs in Hydra, and this was a really good one. My exercise for the day for certain.
The place was lovely to see and the views from there were priceless. If for nothing else, go for the views.
I actually sat outdoors for a bit and had a tiny pocket-sized paining kit with me, so I got to sketch a while before heading back. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

The mansion was only a few minute walk from our hotel, so we decided to see what it has to offer. The view of the island from the mansion was pretty, and the lady at the reception was patient and explained to us what we were about to see. The ticket gets you in to the mansion and also the Tetsis studio and home, which was a pleasant surprise. For only €4 I would definitely recommend this to those who like to learn about some history of Hydra and look at some art pieces. There were also several photo ops for those who are interested in that.

Hydra is the perfect place to wander the narrow streets and climbing up from the right hand side of the harbour we started seeing signs to Koundouriotis Mansion so we followed and it was well worth it. The view over the harbour ,the family had a major fishing fleet, is fantastic.The interiors are original with wooden panel ceilings the furniture was collected by the family, the revolution in which the family were prominent is celebrated, the display of local bridalware is good ,and then there are the art works by the Constandinios father and son.

This museum was in a well kept building overlooking the harbour. The views were fantastic if you climbed very high on this island. There are no cars here and the main mode of transport is by donkey or horse. All of the tourist attractions are reasonably priced.

This was a lovely little museum a slight huff and puff up the hill from the seaside in Hydra. It was the home of Lazaros Koundouriotis, one of the fathers of Greek independence, and the house was an important planning center for the war. The Museum is a branch of the Greek National Historical Museum (Athens). The house was built in 1750 and it is a lovely example of upper class island life of the 18th and 19th century when Hydra was the home to the great families of the Greek shipping industry. In addition to the historical pieces it is a very picturesque site with wonderful views of the harbor and the hill behind. It has a good collection of traditional Greek women's costumes and also a collection of the art of impressionist painter Periclis Byzantios and Constantin Byzantios, his son, I believe. The latter's Paris exhibition catalogue prologues were written by the likes of Eugene Ionesco and Michel Foucault. So it is important to the history of contemporary Greek art.

The staff were accommodating and knowledgable when we had questions. Admission was just two euros. If you're just walking the town on your day in Hydra, do come here.

Walking into this house is like stepping into another era. It's hard to imagine, given its size and calibre, that someone lived here! Not only is the house itself carefully maintained, but they have some neat exhibits on the fashions of the era. The gift shop is full of affordable goodies!

I must say our favorite part of this mansion museum was seeing the wonderful artwork of P. & C. Byzantios. The costumes/traditional dress from the different islands of Greece was extraordinary too. And getting an authentic feel for the architecture, design, layout and lifestyle of a different era in Hydra was wonderful. A must see museum in Hydra.
