Reviewed 31 May 2018

This is a 19th century house which was donated with its furnishings. It is interesting to see how people lived back then. I found the house very stuffy and lacking air flow and it was not even warm outside. I cannot imagine how they tolerated the heat with no fans or air conditioning. I suppose you adjust.

Admission is 2 euro each. It is open from April - October in the evening. I think the hours are 6 p.m. - 9 p.m, but I am not certain.

This little traditional, historic Mykonos home is worth spending the few minutes it takes to walk through and see what life looked like many years ago in this Greek paradise. Most of the furnishings are authentic originals, full of gorgeous antiques. There is no admission fee (but they do invite donations) and they actually sell some interesting locally produced items as unique souvenirs. Worth your time!

Great photo ops here... worth the little hike up. Take your time and just enjoy these views and scope out the town from here.

Small little typical Mykonos house furnished as she was at Lena's time. Interesting in some apects. It will not take too much time to visit.

Surely this is the world's smallest museum! Wedged in between shops selling Gucci and Louis Vuitton is this little gem. The old lady who owned it lived here till the late sixties but seemed to keep the house as a nineteenth century timewarp. Visitors get to see the living room and two bedrooms chockablock full of paintings, lace, old photos and other bric a brac. It'll only take you them ni=minutes to whizz around but a very different flavor to the rest of Mykonos
