  • 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅 Both Industrial heritage museum and arts centre with cafe, shop, gallery and outdoor concert platform. Enjoyed a tour away from hordes at Red beach. Lovely and fast talking guide showed us around original tomato processing factory that operated from 1915. Original machinery in situ. A film of elderly locals reminiscing about working at the factory and farming tomatoes was a real insight: how tough life must have been. I'll never look at a tin of tomato paste the same!
  • A great space and well done for showing the work of contemporary Greek artists. The museum shop is really good and has a plethora of handcrafted goods for all ages. There is also a nice cafe serving fresh tomato juice!
  • Beautiful museum. Such a pleasure to visit a place on Santorini that is not packed with tourists. Great gift shop. Nice art exhibition in the warehouses.
  • Totally worth it a visit together with the art gallery next to it. The tour is for free and very interesting and the place in a beautiful scenery and very organized. Try the tomato juice afterwards.
  • Amazing tour of the factory !! Great staff and fab experience to learn about hardship to make pick tomatoes and make yummy and sweet tomato paste. You will also get to taste the finish product !!
