The Maritime Museum of Andros, Greece: The Maritime (or Nautical) Museum of Andros is housed in an elegant Neoclassical mansion in Chora, in the square of the Unknown Soldier. Its location gives an excellent view to the Aegean Sea and may work symbolically to connect the sea, the museum and the long maritime tradition of the locals, who had always been connected to the sea as traders, fishermen or seamen.

The Maritime Museum of Andros was established in 1972 and has a rich collection with nautical items from the ancient until modern times such as shipping documents, models of old and new vessels, nautical dairies, costumes and many other exhibits that depict the strong connection of the locals to the sea.
