Naval Museum of Symi

It was back in 1983 when the museum of seacraft was created and in 1990 it was lodged into one of the most representative neoclassical houses of that time, where the central shipyard was located. There's a special part of this exhibition dedicated to sponge-fishing with exhibits such as: diving suits, diving machines, sponge species, skandalopetres and other equipment that sponge-divers were using, as well as some models of sponge-fishing boats. The nautical equipment and the tools have been collected by the well known traditional fitter of Symi Tasos Anastasiadis. The boat models are made by Antonis Polias.
