“Quiet, cool and interesting enclave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Passed an interesting and pleasant hour or so here looking at the history of Samos through images found on the island. Lots of rather elegant statues and beautiful pots, glassware etc. all elegantly laid out in a cool, modern and spacious setting. A nice contrast to the heat outside!

“History bit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

You can't visit Samos without admiring its history. We visited museums in Pythagoria and Samos Town. Both were excellent. This is an excellent air conditioned museum with very good presentation and explanations. It was both relaxed and informative

“Good island museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This museum togetehr with one in Samos Town means the island is very well equipped with archaeological museums. The Pythagorio museum has some very fine Roman mosaics in a modern building.

This is new museum which presents all the recent finds from Hereion and other sites on Samos. The presentation of objects is first class with excellent explanations in both Greek and English.

“Museum with a clear narrative line”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

A modern, well-structured museum, with comprehensive labels and a narrative line from the hellenistic to the Byzantine period of Samos. The museological design is clear and communicates perfectly the past life and history to the visitors. Very impessive - deserves a visit.
