This museum is a real gem. We couldn't believe that the entrance was free! Beautifully presented. You can listen to samples from different instruments, watch videos and see some of the most beautifully crafted instruments you ever encounter. Don't miss it!
Small museum with traditional folk music instruments. But what an intresting surprise. Well presented and to the point. Free enterance and easy to find. Worth a visit. Don't miss the audio samples with traditional music from various greek regions
Great place if you're passionate about music. I loved that they had headphones so you can actually hear what the instruments sounded like.
What a special place to see and hear the musical instruments of the Greek people. Three floors of engrossing specimens and descriptions. The instrument shop has limited hours, but the shopkeeper is incredibly helpful.
I’m going to Greece right now and I want to go this awesome place!
