A hidden gem for any art lover especially lovers of Matisse. It is an amazing collection of works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Leger, Braque and more accumulated by the the publisher and editor of Verve the iconic art magazine.

I love this place. My second time to this museum. It is filled with amazing prints and so much history related to cubist art. Prints from Chagall, Picasso, Miro, Matisse... it is amazing. Theriade printed art magazines in Paris and befriended artists. The only downside is the displays are all in Greek and French, and I unfortunately am not literate in either language. Very well worth the 3 Euro entry price. If you like this type of art, plan to spend a couple of hours at least. The building is not large, but is is packed full of beautiful prints.

If you like modern art, this small museum is ideal, well laid out. Most of the artists are french, hence presumably why the captions are all in French and Greek only. Pity, as English is the universal language on the island. Most Sites, including tripadvisor, had a wrong location: it is on the outskirts of town, well signposted on the airport road (but only when travelling from the airport!).

A museum of the famous Teriade. Writer, editor and great supporter of art. With lithographic and copper engraving artifacts of expressionism, dadaism, surrealism etc., and a room with drawings of the painter Theofilos.

It’s a quite nice but unfortunately very badly managed.
First of all it’s not easy to find.
There is also another museum just before, called Theophilos Museum.
They make confusion as there are no signs.
Inside it was hot, air conditioning was off. The visual screens didn’t work. There was nothing written in English, not even a word. Just in Greek and French!
It closes at 2 pm.
The garden around the 2 museum is quite nice with lots of olive trees.
The museum staff wasn’t useful at all. When we said it was too hot inside, they ignored it.
