I've been to this museum many times while visiting family in Lesvos. Ever reviewer is correct, the mosaics are simply stunning and so detailed. I really could spend hours looking at them. The staff is lovely, especially the elderly woman that one reviewer complained about. In Greece, order and respect is valued and I think its ok if visitors are occasionally followed as there have been problems in the past. It doesn't bother me if a caretaker is watchful over valuable artwork..its happened many times at museums, I get it and understand it. Now that we have that out of the way, its a great way to spend a few hours and learn about Lesvos. Afterwards, relax under the shade of an old olive tree that will be waiting for you when you've completed your walk through the museum.
