There were several very very old machines, and many photos to enjoy. Be sure to check out the little car at the end.

Founded back in 1834-5, this museum is now located on the left of the Town Hall, and is well worth visiting. Though small, it contains some interesting examples of Cycladic art and crafts, retrieved mainly from excavation sites in nearby Chalandriani. Unfortunately most of the...More
