It’s good to see how people were living in Greek Islands beg of 19th century and see the environment that the writer grow... More

The museum is a little townhouse where the writer has lived - unfortunately there is nothing translated everything is Greek so if you really want to learn something about the writer if you do not have a local with you that can translate better off to let it were it is. Very little time needed to do the tour.

An oasis of calm in busy Skiathos town. A mere 1.50 Euros to visit the former home of one of Greece's greatest writers, unfortunately with information displayed only in Greek. Buy 'The Murderess' in the museum shop and prepare to be amazed.

Very disappointing, only took about 20 mins to walk round and look at everything and most of the information sheets were in Greek

Not too much to see, the place is very small, and few of the exhibits have English translations. It didn't help that I'm unfamiliar with the author's work (excuse my ignore) so it didn't really resonate with me. Still it's only €1.50 to get in and you get a glimpse into how the islanders lived
