The museum is quite small but manages to capture the horrors of what the local population experienced during the war. Lots of photos and some poignant stories. Definitely worth a visit.

The museum tells the story of a very dark day during the second world war. It shows how the events occurred in a reasonably sympathetic and unbiassed manner. It was a dreadful time in European history. Hopefully, museums like this will help us to avoid...More

The Kalavryta Municipal Museum is devoted solely to the massacre of innocent civilians by the German Wehrmacht which took place not only in Kalavryta but also the entire region during December 1943. Entire villages were attacked and destroyed and males over 12 years of age...More

This museum was excellent. It really takes you from understanding the town of Kalavryta, the people and it’s important role in the underground resistance. It charts well the events, the perpetrators and the victims. More moving is both the statue of a wife dragging her...More

Recommend all visitors to this city stop here to get a picture of the level of Nazi atrocities in rural Greece. If you are not a WW2 historian you will still learn a large amount about the massacre here.

Although most of the exhibits are not something special, the visit to the museum is unique. Videos play constantly giving to the guests testimonies of the events from survivors and witnesses. Recommend it.
