Shades of Captain Corelli's mandolin and Guns of Navaronne, but an informative experience of the events in the battle of Leros - which led to the British army's retreat from the Dodecanese in WW2. Worth seeing the short film at the end of the tunnels...More

Good way to spend an hour learning about Leros' history around the time of WW2. They have collected/ had donated some really interesting pieces.

We were taken to the war museum as part of an organised tour of the island. It was well worth the visit not so much to see the everything but as a reminder of man's inhumanity to man. Impressive tunnels built by the blood and...More
