An oasis of calm in busy Skiathos town. A mere 1.50 Euros to visit the former home of one of Greece's greatest writers, unfortunately with information displayed only in Greek. Buy 'The Murderess' in the museum shop and prepare to be amazed.

Very disappointing, only took about 20 mins to walk round and look at everything and most of the information sheets were in Greek

Not too much to see, the place is very small, and few of the exhibits have English translations. It didn't help that I'm unfamiliar with the author's work (excuse my ignore) so it didn't really resonate with me. Still it's only €1.50 to get in...More
