If you are at all interested in Greek music, pay a visit. Very nice collection of instruments with explanations, in a former private house. Smallish but feels comprehensive, and admission is free. Enjoyed the visit.

This museum is a real gem. We couldn't believe that the entrance was free! Beautifully presented. You can listen to samples from different instruments, watch videos and see some of the most beautifully crafted instruments you ever encounter. Don't miss it!
