Meganisi is a small island inhabited since ancient times and a lot of traces can be found from the Paleolithic era as well as parts from Mycenaean tombs that have been discovered in the surrounded region.
Currently there are no museums in Meganisi, apart from the archaeological discoveries and excavations that are still underway. However, there are plans for a Folklore Museum and an Archaeological-Historical Museum.
The closest museums are found in the neighboring island of Lefkada, which is only 20 minute boat ride to Nydri. In Lefkada, there is a small Archaeological Museum and another small but interesting Museum of Phonographs in the heart of Lefkada Town.
