The Maritime museum
was founded in 1972 and the most important of its exhibits are the
old freight contracts, insurance contracts, various nautical diaries, where the
life of the Andriots on the seas before the 1821 War of Indepedence is described,
lithographs of Andriot ships and the later first stream freighters of Greece etc.
There are also displayed models of ships, ranging from old schooners to huge modern
tankers. These exhibits are original and vividly present the entire history of
Andros' merchant marine, from antiquity to our day.
