Description

Spetses Museum

The Museum of Spetses is housed in a beautiful 18th century mansion, the former residence of Hatzigiannis-Mexis, one of the island's benefactors and supporter of the 1821 Revolution. It is located just after Dapia and is shaped like a Greek and consists of a ground floor and two upper floors.

Mexi's office, the dining room and the room containing the safe are on the ground floor. There are two spacious rooms on the first floor which served as the women's quarters and the guest rooms, while the second floor has the formal living room, typical of a Spetses house with a magnificent wooden ceiling.

You can see priceless objects here which represent more than 4.000 years of cultural history of the island. The archaeological society recently enriched the collection with a generous donation of coins and numerous finds from different periods which Antonis Kiru had amassed from all over the island as well as other areas. In addition, the exhibits include ceramics, a significant number of icons and religious items, the flag from the Revolution, Bouboulina's bones, historical documents etc.

Lastly, every day objects which show the lifestyle of the inhabitants -before the Revolution- that are of particular cultural interest.
