It’s an odd little place that’s a bit worn, but the owner is really friendly and accommodating, plus it gave us an indoor spot to avoid the heavy rain! It’s a bit of a mixed bag, the historic information about local weaving wasn’t really my...More

Great little museum. Very interesting insight into pre industrial life on the island. Private museum obviously a labour of love for the curator/owner. Definitely worth a few hours off the beach!

Great insight into the traditional greek way of living. Most practices are no longer used and have been replaced by modern means of production. The town has a few tavernas where you can enjoy a drink and wonderful views towards the mainland.

Whilst the small road from the village does pass the museum entrance there is no dedicated car park and I don't recall whether the road is quite wide enough to park right outside. Depending on your personal mobility issues... More
