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.

The museum is located in a square which is currently under renovation so you could easily assume it is closed. Check their site for opening days as even churches are closed on Zante island during the day. Most museums close around 2 or 3pm and...More
