Great experience!!
Jul 2021
I was surprised to discover there are so many interesting things in this museum. All the historical things displayed here are in very good condition, and the explanation in English is very clear. Very interesting to know, and highly recommended!

A Step Back Into History!
Sep 2019
There are many great displays on several levels, packed with history, including personal items of many former prominent citizens of Leros. An interesting step back into history! (I went in September 2019.)

A view for all!

The artefacts in the museum are amazing. They cover various parts of the islands history and are a definite must to go and see. Thank you also to George who escorted my wife and I around the upper levels with a fascinating commentary as we viewed the contents.

A good outlook on history and culture of Leros
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is originally an old house of an Egyptian immigrant but now a municipality building. You can see here pictures, maps, documents about the history of the island. Yorgo, the keeper of the museum, warmly welcomed us although he wanted to close because of the working hour and accompanied us. Thanks to him we did not miss this experience. Downstairs right you can see the artwork of contemporary Greek artists or poet who prisoned in Leros. Upstairs you will see the maps and the medical instruments, the pieces of the Ship Olga which was hit by British during the second world war. It is worth to see the house.

A high quality museum
Jun 2018 • Family
The story of also this building is similar to story of its neighbour. A richman emigrant from Egypt and his family from the island are the first owners of the building. Next generations were donated it to the government. Now it is used as folklore and history museum. Its two floors are open to visit. There are rooms exhibited different objects. The part consisting the works made by political prisoners at the entrance floor and the room exhibited the objects from WW2 era are interesting. The design of here is more tidy and successful than Merikia War Museum

A complete history in one building where German troops were once treated for their injuries and General Muller stood in the garden. A great collection of militaria inside

Very interesting

The building itself and the story of its original owner is fascinating. It houses an eclectic collection of furnishings, costumes and musical instruments from the early part of the twentith century. Worth a visit.

Beautiful tower
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very nice building that exposes traditional items from Leros as well as findings from the war. The entrance is 3 euro and the stuff is very willing to explain you everything about the place and the exhibitions.

Can't miss it!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Half way along the waterfront of Alinda bay, this 'standout', fabulous old building would be difficult to miss.
It is home to some fascinating artefacts , both folklore and from WWII (during which, some significant events took place on Leros and are rightfully still clearly remembered). There is also a small exhibition devoted to George Themelis, a son of Leros, who despite blindness, became a world famous pianist.
Well worth a visit.

An astonishing museum with a splendid curator
Jun 2018 • Couples
The museum is divided into 4 sections: – (1) works of art created by political prisoners in. The curator told us that they were communists held during the regime of the military dictatorship of Greece. (2) A display of many surgical instruments. The building had been hospital during World War II. (3) A museum of folklore containing items of interest and many photographs donated by residents of Leros. (4) A military Museum recording the invasion and occupation of Leros by Germany after with drawl of Italian forces in 1943/44 particularly about the naval battle of Leros.
