Musical instruments museum


Location: Oia   

Santorini Museum of Musical Instruments: The Museum of Ancient, Byzantine and post-Byzantine musical instruments is housed in the old Community building of Oia Santorini, a characteristic and central spot of the village. The museum, which hosts the personal collection of Mr Halaris, a prominent musician, was recently inaugurated, in October 2011, and was the result of many years of hard work.

This interesting collection includes musical instruments that date from 2,800 B.C. till the early 20th century. It shows the effort of the Mr Halaris to preserve music as part of an ever-changing civilization. The reconstruction of some musical instruments was done with the contribution of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. The categorization of the exhibits was made according to their date and kind.

A visit to the museum is possible upon request at (0030) 22860 72000
