  • This was the first time for us that TripAdvisor ratting had nothing to do with what we found at the site. I mean, this is not even a real museum: just 2 rooms with old factory equipment. Not much to s...  more »
  • Small museum, which really worked until 1981. The Museum in is soon visited him, but the most fascinating part is the little movie or we see former workers explain their factory, a great moment of humanity. During the vision I have even received a toast with tomato puree and a small glass of white wine, it was a nice little moment

  • We saw some indications and then got this building with a tall smokestack and the signs at the entrance we were intrigued. We faced the memory not to be missed for a realtàby a past that wasn't to beaches or sunsets with cheers or boos (in fact, in a couple of evenings some clouds hid the final part of the sunset and from boats and stands several departed whistles and bu, just lacked the bring back the ticket money and were fully booked). We had noticed a discreet presence of tomatoes especially tomatoes offered in various sauces and condiments but we did not think to a membership of a component of an economy. Machinery and photos tell of other times and other stories but a willingness to work and experience that should not die, this is the message from this structure and industrial history of recovery combined with the art painting and sculptures are visible in the other pavilions, we saw a stage performance venue but we weren't close before you can access the various shows

  • 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅 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 !!
