We visited only the first floor, very small exhibit, 4 euros entrance, no information given, just you go around reading the info in the wall next to paintings and some of them only in Greek! No English!
It’s a very nice museum with impressive pieces of history from the island old churches, including full altar panels and 360 degrees frescos. Really impressive. Would like more information in English though (the pieces are labelled both in Greek and in English but not the...More
This is a wonderful museum simply because you get to see the care and consideration that was given following the earthquake that impacted on the islands residents in the aftermath of a tragedy. worth a visit even if just too reflect

Some amazing ecclesiastical art rescued from churches destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. There is a reconstruction of the 16th century St Andreas monastery and a model of how the town looked between 1930 and 1950. The museum is closed on Mondays.
Visited the museum on Saturday. Small but very interesting, however, in one room there is a.large plinth in the middle of the room which has no warning signs or guard rail. It is very easy to kiss and have an accident.
There are two parts to the museum, the first being its stated purpose "The Museum of post-Byzantine art" containing paintings, frescos and (in one case) the complete interior of a church destroyed by the 1953 earthquake; the second is a record of that earthquake.
