Museums in Lipsi

The island of Lipsi hosts a small Ecclesiastical museum. This museum is located inside the Church of Agios Ioannis Theologos, the Cathedral of Lipsi. The ecclesiastical exhibition hosts rare icons from the 16th and the 17th century, golden crosses, holy veils embroidered with gold and many other church utensils. There is a folklore exhibition as well that showcases local costumes, items of daily use, coins from various periods, few photographs and other interesting exhibits.

The museum occupies a small archaeological collection with vessels, vases, figurines, coins and other findings from excavations that have taken place all over the island. Many findings from these excavations have been transferred to the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes and the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. This museum is usually open in morning hours, even in high season. The same building also hosts a library, created by UNESCO.
