Arcaeological Museum of Pigadia

Marble columns staring at the sea welcome you to the Archaeological Museum which is right next to the administrative seat of the island. The museum has three small rooms with island findings from the prehistoric till the early Christian and medieval times. The first room houses stone objects and jars dating back to the 4thand 3rd millennium BC, as well as objects from the Mycenaean era. In this room, there is also a replica of a tomb from the 15th-early 13th century BC that was discovered at Vonies of Arkasa.

Folklife Museum of Menetes

Carved tombs welcome you as you walk past the entrance of a small two-storey building that is over 200 years old. Upstairs you will get to see objects of the everyday life of the villagers, musical instruments and old fotos as you slowly walk on a black and white floor made of shingles. This floor was initially meant to house a small chapel but this plan was never implemented. The ossuary of the village used to be downstairs. However, in 1995, it was converted into a museum. There you’ll find farming tools and traditional kitchen utensils.   Info  Opening hours: every day, 9.00-13.00 Tel.: +30 22450 81190
