Beautiful small 'Museum' but this isn't history. Brings the war so close especially if you have stayed with local families as they lost their grandfathers,uncles , brothers. Difficult to comprehend now.

The beauty of the ride from Diakopto to Kalavryta on the narrow gauge railway is unsurpassed. The lovely village of Kalavryta must have been the most awful place in 1943. Visits to the Memorial on the hill where so many died and the Museum of...More

Very informative museum describing the horrors and atrocities performed by the Nazis in WWII. They were ready to burn alive women and children in the town's school, massacred all men above 14 years old. Shocking and revolting!
