  • Nice small museum in Greek town. There are 3 floors. The 1st floor has a store and a small exhibition on the migrants arriving by boats on Greek territory with pictures of camps. Second floor shows the work of a Greek immigrant artist and was very beautiful. Third floor explains the war of Independence and the departure of many Greeks to the United States. This exhibition was interesting but sometimes a bit confusing.
  • They place is huge very empty. I wish I would've seen old Greek ruins or something along the area. Parking we used some pizza joint in the corner. Some pieces were very interesting. Pictures below. Is what I found interesting.
