Must see.

Amazing little museum with top European art. If you understand culture do not miss it. It should be in the top five destinations of the island.

Sadly, because of the Greek financial crisis, the Teriades Museum has never been officially re-opened since its total renovation, and is currently officially closed. BUT in a typically Greek way, it is sometimes possible to turn up and gain access ... If you are lucky enough to do so [tip generously as well as pay the ridiculously cheap ticket price... More

This is a little gem! Works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miro, Derriain, all up a little side street. The information is only in Greek and French, but the art does speak for ifself.

Very nice and modern museum, with plenty of original paintings. it is a pity it is almost never open, due to renovation, although is seems finished and totally renovated.

The museum is closed for renovations but you can visit the museum next door which is devoted to the native naive artist painter born on this island
