  • A small museum, getting a bit old, especially some of the stuffed animals. One of the best thing would be the view from the upper floor, but this is not used. Still a good reason to visit another part of the island, and some interesting information.
  • An amazing hidden treasure in Zakynthos with lots of interesting and unbelievable artifacts. A must visit. It's situated in a beautiful little village too.
  • Really nice collection, always friendly and educated tours from the staff. I recommend this if you like nature
  • An interesting museum and worth a visit, but not wildly exciting!
  • Quite disappointing. There are dried butterflies, birds and shells. Overpriced.
