  • This is a real hidden gem. Led by Jenny, we enjoyed a personal insight into the home and way of life of a family on the island in years gone by. I wont list the exhibits or spoil any surprises suffice...  more »
  • Very nice museum, with a guide at the top who taught us a lot. A 40-minute tour full of wealth, anecdotes and sharing about the life of the inhabitants of this beautiful island.

  • A highlight of our time in Santorini. We had had some great pool and beach days and wanted to complement that with some history and culture. The curator was very friendly and knowledgeable. My son stayed entertained the whole time and it was a good contrast to see how people used to live Vs. our modern fast paced lives. It was 5 euro for an adult and free for a child. I gave extra in the donation box because we enjoyed it very much.
  • Old compound with impressively small bedrooms for a huge family, a kitchen where the wood oven could only be used 5 times a year and with the small stoves used regularly instead, a storage for oil, meat and dried bread, tools for female and male occupations (from treading to distillery activities but also for blacksmiths, carpenters and leather artisans) all located in cave capable of maintaining the temperature at 20 degrees all the year around. The private Chapel for extra protection in the sea is a must for any family on the island and a mine in the underground was used for extra income. It reminded me of the "sassi" in Matera, South of Italy.
