  • Great little place and personal tour! A lot of hard work and effort has gone into it and it shows. Definitely worth a quick detour, call to check opening times!
  • It was a very nice experience. The owner was so friendly, gave us, so to say, a private tour through the museum. We would recommend the visit to everybody, who will visit Andros. The owner suggested us to try Loukoumades and we did - it was so delicious...Thanks a lot for this advice 😍
  • Superb little museum - the owner is very friendly and does a great guided tour. Definitely worth a visit
  • Great place! Dimitrius is a lovely person. He guided us at the museum. Recommended and fascinating experience.
  • A really interesting piece of history, presented with knowledge and enthusiasm by the owner Demitris.
