If you decide to visit the Maritime Museum, make sure you get the guided tour, cannot recall his name but he is so passionate and proud about his collection. You will learn some very interesting facts about nautical items.

So nice and so new maritime museum. As we did not expect something like that in Hersonissos we were surprised when we found it during our walk on port.

Just visited this wonderfull, small but very very interesting maritime museum. Our guide was very informed about all the exhibits and we did learn thinks we didn't know. If you visit maritime collection don't miss to have a close look at models of Greek ships
