“Lacking human interest”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Some interesting artefacts, but insufficient information to accompany the exhibits. More information about life and historical maritime Santorini would give much needed context to the items on display, particularly the photographs. The figureheads are the highlight in my opinion. Still, it's air conditioned.

If you consider the entrance fee a donation towards the conservation of Santorini's history (let's face it the Greek Government can't afford much at the moment!), then it's still money well spent.

“Museum without a story”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Visited this museum with an open mind as reading previous reviews, it was interesting with lots of interesting artifacts, however there is no story to provide the visitor with a journey through history, it is all mixed up and not really joined up. In addition the information presented is mostly in Greek, yes this is expected but have seen translations of information in other languages and this would help the visitor.
Thus the visit was short only 30 mins and that was at a stretch.

“Break from the heat, but not overly exciting”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We did enjoy the temporary break from the heat of the sun, but the museum was fairly run down and not that informative. There were a fair amount of things to see, but nothing that really tied them together, very few stories, or anything to give the artifacts interest or relevance.
