The Historical Archives Museum of Hydra was founded in 1918 and it is housed in an elegant stone mansion that belonged to the local shipowner Gikas Koulouras. In 1996, the building was renovated and is now the most impressive mansion at the port of Hydra. Right next to the entrance, there are some old anchors and signs of the rich nautical impression of the island.

The museum hosts the historical archives that were kept for years inside the Church of Assumption of the Virgin Mary. These archives include educational, administrative, and religious archives, manuscripts from the Greek Revolution, old books, maps, and others. The museum also exhibits relics from the Balkans Wars and the two World Wars, traditional costumes, carvings, naval instruments, and painting works.
