Bouboulina’s Museum is family-owned and since opening in 1991 has been visited by over 500,000 people, who have been moved by the fascinating story of this heroine of the Greek War of Independence. We offer tours to independent travelers and we can also accept (with prior confirmation) groups of up to 100, at a time suitable to the requirements of the group itinerary. In our beautiful garden area, visitors read a brief history of Bouboulina’s life (available in 18 languages **) before entering the Mansion itself where the tour inside is then conducted in English: we are flexible regarding on the spot translating by your group leader into another language.In the grounds of the Mansion there is a three-hundred square metre pebble-mosaic courtyard, with olive trees and abundant flowers and shrubs, where we hold our Cultural Festival each summer with events such as opera, theatre, dance, children's theatres, modern song, piano and violin. Entrance to the Festival is free - any donations are used for various causes on the island.** Languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish

Visited this fascinating museum in the centuries-old home of a heroine of the Greek War of Independence. Prepare for your visit by reading up on this truly remarkable lady (sadly unfamiliar to most people outside Greece) to appreciate her significance. Her descendants still live on the first floor of the house - our tour was conducted by her several-times great... More

The guided tours are in English and Greek (and perhaps other languages as well?) and the guides are terrific. It's a really interesting... More

My husband and I aren't usually fans of guided tours but this was truly exceptional today. The house has such a wonderful history with amazing furniture and possessions belonging to Bouboulina. She is such an inspirational woman! Don't miss out - the guided tour is absolutely fantastic!

Fantastic and really interesting! Although I don't usually visit "period" styled museums, I thought our tour of the Bouboulina Mansion/Museum was really and genuinely fascinating. Many in situ artefacts from her life and times were of huge interest and I loved the enthusiasm and knowledge of tour guide (a girl who's name I forget). Although we were just two (for... More

Once you are in the island you shouldn't miss to visit this house-museum. A tour guide every almost an hour is included in the ticket price[6 euros for adults] and you will travel back to 1821 and the Greek revolution. You should check the timetable outside the museum, or the official board at the central port next to the departures,... More
