The Solomos museum was okay as museums go, but I think it's really aimed at Greek visitors. Almost all the captions are in Greek and a lot of the paintings and artefacts (from what I could gather) seem to relate to Greek politics and politicians, whom I suspect most non-Greek visitors wouldn't really know about. Still, it's worth a look if you're in Zakynthos town and it does contain the grave of Dionysos Solomos. To their credit, both this and the Zakynthos/Byzantine museum seem to be aimed at preserving history and have very little in the way of merchandise -maybe just a few postcards and a couple of books. Similar things in Britain would have a whole shop full of souvenirs.
spent a pleasant hour or so here this year, didnt understand the cabinets full of writings as they were in greek, but the pictures and antique furniture were well worth seeing
Very cool,quiet museum in Solomos square. If you are not particularly interested in this famous poet, the icons displayed are beautiful and there is a clean toilet to use!
