Worthwhile visiting but, frankly, Bouboulina’s Museum steals the show. While in Spetses be sure to go to Bouboulina’s Museum first and only then to Spetses Museum - which, by the way, not surprisingly, also partly deals with Bouboulina’s life and deeds.

Housed in an old mansion. The most interesting item is the greek revolution flag raised in Spetses in 1821. Apart from that nothing special. Not a bad visit however.

It's an interesting museum although very small. Even the children enjoyed it (we were a large group with lots of children: toddlers, school kids and teenagers). The downside- no toilets.

A most interesting museum installed in the listed mansion of Chatzigiannis Mexis, a powerful notable of Spetses during the Greek War of Independence. Reasonably priced and easy to find!

Being my first greek island, this one ticked all the right boxes, lots of history and not so far from Hydra, which is totally different of course!, then around the corner to Poros, which is totally different again , don't miss Epidauros, or Nafplion, or...More
