We were impresed about the museum and about each piece of work exposed there. The boats are made with all details, the artist didn’t miss anything. It is almost unbelievable. The story of the museum is also interesting and the daughter of the artist, Katarina, told us about her father who dedicated entire work to his wife. When we went outside and visited the garden, we were even more amazed and, walking around, is like you visit the Cyclades wonders And to have a perfect visit, we discover the artist himself, who was siting in the garden, enjoying a nice September evening. He talked to us and he invited us to have some figs from his garden.
Go there and spend some time to the museum!

This is a really adorable little house and garden full of models of buildings and boats from across the islands. It's great to take a look at places you've visited before or get some inspiration for where to go next, and poke around at all the tiny details of the models. It's especially nice to learn about the man who built it all and meet his lovely family, who will tell you more about him and answer all your questions.
Really worth a visit (and really cheap entry!)

We loved our visit to this little place. From being greeted by Katarina, the artist's daughter, to viewing the incredible array of boats and buildings built by the artist, it was all charming.

Whatever you do don’t miss this exhibit. The name does not do the exhibit justice in terms of the craftsmanship and attention to detail this man has put into his work.
The ships are truly amazing in detail and the buildings are just magnificent.
