  • Not worth the 4 euro entrance fee. The upstairs part is closed. Plus almost everything was in greek. The art works are interesting, but they are not kept in a climate controlled environment, and they are degrading. The main room is the most interesting part, with a scale model of the old town before the earthquake. This part is free. But the other 2 rooms which require a ticket are not worth the price.
  • Shame only a fraction of the museum is open The little bit we did see worth the €2 entrance fee. The 16 and 18th century frames around the paintings amazing. Have not seen many like these.
  • Upstairs wasn't open but we still had to pay just to look at the two small exhibitions downstairs. Appreciate the culture but the cathedral is a much more beautiful place to visit.
  • Half closed on our visit. The upstairs was closed.
  • Ok
