Newer looking building. 2 floors. Pleasent staff. Pictures have descriptions in Greek and English. Explaining type of material use, type of canvas, why picture taken. Little history with picture. Amazing detail.

Excellent presentation in a remarkable building. Covers all steps of the LONG history of the region. Very good introduction to visiting other nearby sites.
