We found this place highly rated in several sites so made a visit. It is very well organised and well laid out but there really isn’t that much to see. The exhibits are typically items of machinery from the past activities of the city. There...More

The museum seems to be partly closed (the upper floor was not open) and it seems more to depict the idea of collecting items that represent certain eras of the industrial heritage of Siros than a concept on how to tell visitors a story about...More

A very interesting museum which gives a very good picture of the flourishing industry and businesses on Syros in the previous centuries. Among the very interesting items shown is an electric car produced there in the 60ties!! Amazing. Both the lady and the gentleman in...More

This (free) museum, appropriately housed in a refurbished industrial building near the shipyard, gives an interesting insight into the town’s history – from its origins and growth through the nineteenth century to its mid-twentieth-century decline and its current resurgence. That process is illustrated with architects’...More

Lovely little museum featuring the industrial history of Syros. The main highlight is a cute 1970s electric car designed by Enfield in London but manufactured in Syros I had no idea electric cars were being trialled nearly 50 years ago. Other favourites include photographs, printing...More

A good look at the industrial history of Ermoupolis mainly. Picures, old machines, replicas....it only takes about 35-40 minutes to see everything. Just a short walk from the center of town.
