What a special visit. A tour of the owner Spirous Katsouris. The museum consists of three floors. on the bottom floor you see in display cases minerals, coral, stones, books, fossils and fish in bottles with special water to keep them in good condition. The first floor is a "living floor" beautiful ceiling paintings and interior with a huge history. Mr. Spirous Katsouris talks very enthusiastically about the origin of the pieces present. And knows a lot about the Greek mythology. On the top floor you will find books, rare paintings, clothing, jewelery etc and the owner knows how to tell about this. It is too much to describe. Very rare pieces are in the museum. Also family pieces. The museum has won several prizes, including from Unesco. We were speechless of all the beauty we saw and all the stories. For over one and a half hours he has taken us through the museum. how special is that a private tour of a museum by the inventor and owner of the museum. The owner Mr. Katsouris is a very special and warm person with a lot of knowledge of the history of his pieces in the museum. He has designed the museum himself. The museum definitely deserves far more visitors and attention than it gets now. In short, it is a museum where you can learn a lot about folklore, geology and mineralogy and so much more.
