The mansion/museum allows one to experience what life might have been like for Lazaros Koundouriotis and his family. Our guide was fantastic and she was able to help our group understand the history of the island and family along with show us how the family would have used the home to entertain. Well worth the admission fee.

The house is a good example the early 20th century on the island. Down stares houses a nice art exhibit.

Three days were just enough if you dont want to walk far or go to beaches, we enjoyed the museums and tavernas in the evening. The atmosphere was great - not too commercial and the local people were very friendly.

This house, perched up on the hill overlooking the harbour is a wonderfully laid out collection of historic artifacts and the art of local painters. Whether it's watercolours of Hydra or traditional costumes, they are well displayed and it's well worth a visit.

The former home of Lazaros Koundouriotis, a wealthy Hydroit shows the traditional architecture of Hydra. The second floor houses traditional Greek costumes. Fantastic views of the harbor and hillsides.
