A very special museum..It is located in a tunel with lots of local war findings. The museum isn t well guarded in the inside and many guests were touching all the exibits.

Lovely Museum that could do with serious upgrading, advertisement and support. Explanatory enough and great to see. I wish they could take back one day the goods 'stolen' from them and moved to the Athens Museums. Highly recommended.
