Three museums that you don’t want to miss in Zakinthos are:

- Byzantine Museum. Located in D. Solomos square, it includes the Byzantine icons and frescos of the Fifteenth, Sixteenth and Seventeenth centuries that were in the medieval Churches and were destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. You can also see paintings of Doxaras, Koutouzis and Kanttouni, artists of the Eighteenth century. You can visit the museum every day from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

- The Solomos and Kalvos Museum. Located in St. Marco square, it houses the objects of Dionysios Solomos and Anfreas Kalvos: paintings of the Eighteenth century, sculptures and musical instruments. It is open everyday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

- The Naval Museum. It features artifacts and models of ships that cover the naval history from 1700 to the present day. It is located in Strani Hill. It boasts to be the best naval museum in the world featuring Byzantines vessels.

- Not a museum but a concrete multilayered mark of history, The Venetian Castle’s ruins are the visible mark that Venetians left in the island. The site include other layers of history that go from Byzantine and Medieval Times to the British presence. After the reconstruction works of 1970 and the archaeological excavations of 1984, much of this hidden past was revealed and can now be seen.
