“The Battle of Leros”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

This small museum gives the visitor a brief history of the Battle of Leros and what the Lerians had to endure during the second world war. Built into an original Italian bunker the museum contains war memorabilia of the Germans, Italians and the Allies.

“Tunnel Museum - WW2”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Well worth a visit. It's the only museum about WW2 in the Dodecanese. Very poignant to see and hear about this, not very distant past.
