  • We got into this museum by accident, a tour conducted by the brother of the wizard. During the tour he created such interesting atmosphere, that time has flown by very quickly and our entire company out of 10 adults and children really liked this place! It was very interesting to touch the unique human labour-master! Sculptures with their similarity with real characters, as well as astounding size sculptures! Highly recommend visiting if you go to the cave of Sfendoni.

  • Discovered by chance at the transit Museum. It's amazing what you can make out of wood. Beautiful sculptures, made mostly out of a piece of wood. The brother of the artist brought us around. He was very nice and answered all questions and and to each sculpture, history tells us. We had to photograph time everything and filming. € 5 entry which always have paid off. Kudos to the Künstler.Absolut great worth seeing!

  • The sculptor, George, is self taught. That's amazing in itself but his works are very large, highly detailed, and often carved from a single large piece of wood! He uses all sorts from lemon tree to olive wood and tells you all the stories behind the pieces. You have to go there to appreciate it properly. George was very helpful with my 89 year old disabled mum so she saw more of the galleries than I expected. Bravo!
  • A specialized museum with only wooden products. There are a lot of interesting and beautiful figures and scenery, in some cases simply grand scale. In every creation there is a sense and a story (sometimes sad). The master managed to create unforgettable expats and he has a clear gift. I especially want to note the friendliness of the owners of the museum (relatives of the master master), they can be very interesting to talk with, and their stories can be listened to for hours! Very mature and sincere. By experience, I can say that it is better to plan at least 1 hour to calmly get acquainted with all expanses of the museum. This museum can be combined with visiting the cave Sfendoni Cave in Zonyana, they are not far from each other.
  • Such a pleasure not only to be able to see the wooden sculptures but to hear the story behind them, fantastic work George Koutantos, a pleasure to meet you.
  • It's an unusual museun in which wooden sculptures of a single local artist are excibited.
  • Didn't know what to expect, but the tour by the artist himself exceeded all expectations.
