  • We visited the relatively new museum, split into 3 zones. Curation interesting in a very Greek way. Homer’s Iliad & Odyssey are Leitmotivs. Plenty of nearby archaeological sites.

  • The museum is well laid out and very interesting. Unfortunately I couldn't get to the archaeological site as the narrow road is down the side of a steep drop and I can NOT handle heights. I managed to turn around and go back up. Shame as I really wanted to see the site.
  • The Museum is great for people that love history, however it's not my cup of tea.
