The Oinousses Maritime Museum is located on the waterfront, at the Oinousses port.
It was founded in 1965 and its collection includes model ships, paintings, nautical instruments, documents and books related to the maritime tradition of Oinousses. All the objects have been donated by families of the island. The building of the museum, “Pantelis Ant. Laimos” Mansion has also been donated by the Laimos family.
The late mayor of Oinousses, Antonis Sp. Laimos had envisioned the renovation and expansion of the museum. His brother, Nikolaos Laimos, realised this vision, by creating a modern museum with admirable collections.
The museum has had thousands of visitors during the years, which had the chance to learn about the great maritime tradition of the Oinousses Island. The museum can also host events in the “Marina Laimos” room.
