A bit out of town but make the effort, really unusual location but this is what adds to the atmosphere
Read the history of the battle of leros and this will bring it to life, artefacts, information and a documentary to watch
The war museum was of greatest interest as this is a small island and the museum was put together and manned by the people of the island
It's only open a few hours per day. Check ahead to avoid disappointment. Its off the beaten track, hire a Quad bike to get there.

An interesting little museum, well worth a visit for the artifacts but also to see the tunnels themselves.

Very good musueum. Informative. Not too big , not too small. Also nice and cool as it`s underground. Brought home the historical perspective of the conflict.
