  • Small museum (it's only one room) and not very interesting. The exhibits themselves aren't much but there are some imformational signs explaining the history and culture of the island.

  • a small medival-byzantine museum with engravings from the castles and byzantine icon paintings (some of them very nice if you are into this kind of painting). it is housed in beautiful ottoman mosque. a nice place to visit unfortunately no photos are allowed. Photos are not just a touristic action its an essential part of a museum visit. The people in charge of the museums in greece have to be forced to understand that the exhibits are not theirs to keep and "rule" but part of the (world) cultural heritage.
