Very disappointing, only took about 20 mins to walk round and look at everything and most of the information sheets were in Greek

Not too much to see, the place is very small, and few of the exhibits have English translations. It didn't help that I'm unfamiliar with the author's work (excuse my ignore) so it didn't really resonate with me. Still it's only €1.50 to get in and you get a glimpse into how the islanders lived

The house is small but with significant importance !!! (One of the great authors of the 20th cent.). Very cute and the entrance fee very small. Very good bookshop at the basement with books of the author in various languages !! Make sure you visit the bookshop !!

the museum gave a glimpse of how the author lived. it is not a large place, so can go through fairly fast. Including the gift shop, took an hour. I did purchase an english translation book while there. When reading it a couple months after the trip, it reminded me of the island. (date of trip: May 2011)

The museum is small & is situated in the house where this great Greek writer lived. The house is set out as it would have been when he was living there & there is a small shop selling his books. There is a modest entry charge 1.5 euros. Robert, Devon.
