our visit to the Maritime and Sponge Museum was really interesting and educational - both for myself and my elementary school-aged children. We learned of the history of the area by a well-informed guide. Am glad we took the time to visit!

A very small museum, with a lady that is explaining the history of Nea Koutali, as well as the history of sponge gathering. The lady guide is excellent (she is bilingual, Greek, English).
