A fascinating and very personal museum. We were shown around by the owner who gave us some touching insights into her family history and how many of the exhibits came to be there. It was an unexpected and rewarding visit.

It was so lovely to visit this museum! We had a guided tour, and it was so enchanting to hear the incredible stories of Mrs Eliadas’s late husband, she was obviously extremely proud. We went as a family and would definitely recommend!

A fascinating place with a warm welcome from the owner, but the entrance fee of five euros is a bit much for such a small place
