The museum was originally the family home of Anastassis and Marouko Pateras and it was built in the traditional neo-classical style of the island, featuring beautifully painted ceilings and an enclosed courtyard. After extensive renovation and restoration, the two-storey residence was turned into a public benefit foundation in 1991, accommodating the Maritime Museum, by the descendants of Anastassis and Marouko Pateras.
As a charity, the museum needs support to continue operating, so any donation is greatly appreciated.
The premises are available for conferences, meetings and concerts.
Please contact Yianni or Anna Glyka at the museum for further information.
