    Interesting and spacy
    Very interesting museum just in the centre of Chora. You can't miss it, after all the village is very small and this is a very famous museum. When I visited, there was an exhibition of a Greek painter. Don't remember his name, but it is hard to remember Greek names, especially the surnames! But I liked his work a lot, and the museum was spacy and beautifully organized. One of the few sights to visit in Andros, otherwise it is mostly beaches and relaxing.
