In an old traditional hours of a ship's Capitan you can see the private collection on the the story and the culture of Symi. The main focus is on sponges harvesting that has been the prominent economic activity of the island during two centuries.
If you are looking for souvenirs this is the right place where to buy
unique pieces like paintings, wood sculptures, and antiquities

Small and charming Greek Island. Getting there by boat from enywhere (we came from Rhodes). A self walk tour will take about 1.5 to 2 houres. Beautifull and peacefull place, sorrounded by the sea, nice and friendly people. Bring bathing suit if you like to fresh up in the sea. Nice place to spent half a day. We visited on July 2014, the weather was just perfect.

Still not currently open. No need to go looking for it so don't bother at the moment. No suggestion when this may change

Only 2 euros, but would have preferred to see more and pay more. It would have been good if detailed explanations (in different languages) were displayed. All in all could have been displayed better.

My daughter and I had been to the museum previously 8 years ago and were looking forward to seeing it again. However walking through the narrow streets up the kalistrata and away from the cafe and shops, we followed the signs to the museum only to find it closed. Please symi officials put a sign up to let unsuspecting tourists know that the museum is closed!!

Like many other museums in Greece today, this museum is currently "Closed to allow Improvements". I wish we hadn't walked the back alleys of Chorio following "Museum" signs and black painted arrows trying to find it.

The museum is easy to find just behind the square by the town bridge. It is a traditional old building with lots of local history and a number of interesting exhibits on display. There are good views across the harbour from the first floor terrace. The lovely Natasha, who runs the museum, is a talented local artist and there is a lot of her work on display, all of which can be purchased for reasonable prices. Most of her paintings are done on old wood, be it part of a door or part of an old boat!
