The Maritime Museum of Santorini
The naval history of the island begins from the season before the eruption of 1640 BC.
During the 19th century the naval activities revive, especially by the peopleof Oia.
In Oia, the picturesque
traditional town on the northwest side of Santorini, an old mansion
has been restored and converted into a museum that houses the Maritime
History of Thira.
Rare figureheads, Seamens' Chests, old maritime equipment, carrening
drawings and patterns, models of old and new Thiran ships, acquarelles
featuring old sailing vessels as well as rare photographs and a
library, all register year by year the contribution of the Thirans
to the glorious history of the Hellenic Navy.
