Museums of Hydra Island Greece


There are four museums on Hydra Island Greece, which although not large or on the scale you would find in a big city, have more than enough information and some beautiful exhibits to illustrate Hydra's illustrious history. Well worth visiting all of them by those of you who like to know what makes a community tick.


Lazaros Kountouriotis Mansion

Museum & Historical Archives of Hydra

Tetsis House & Atelier

The Tetsis House & Atelier is managed by the Koundouriotis Mansion. To visit you will first need to buy a ticket from the museum and then you will be taken on a personal guided visit to the Tetsis House.

The Monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Whilst not a museum, the Cathedral Church, and monuments, etc, within the confines of the Monastery should not be missed by anyone seeking more information about the island - here you will find history being lived on a daily basis.


The Monastery with its stunning architecture, tiny cloisters and memorials, is a busy and active center of everyday life in Hydra.


If entered with respect and dressed modestly, visitors are very welcome to visit and find a peaceful refuge where they can absorb more of Hydra's interesting history and heritage.
