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.

Small, basic house where Papadiamandis lived while on Skiathos. House is laid out just how he would have lived. Very interesting & you can buy some of his novels in English

At 1.50 euros per person, it is worth it just to get out of the rain - but, seriously, this is not a museum for those who have little knowledge of nineteenth century Grecian authors. I apologise now for being a philistine, and I do appreciate that there are many students of the modern Greek language and typical houses built... More

Papadiamandis is the linguist who is a hero in Skiathos. This house will tell you why he was so popular and why the town's main street and island's airport is named after him.

Very small house with a historical importance for Greek people with a very small fee. No so friendly attraction for foreigners.

Papadiamantis was not just an intellectual writer but rather a philosopher who influenced the culture of a difficult era in Greece, more than anyone else. He wrote more than 150 novels and poems and many of these have been translated to English. His house is the first place one must visit when in Skiathos.

Very small and not loads to see but it has history and was interesting to just look around. Only cost 1.5 euros each so fine for a little look around.
