Museum Week 2023


We are participating again in #museumweek2023
It is a great action to promote museums through social media.
Every day, a theme that leads us to get to know the history of the different space.
Day 1: World Environment Day (5/6):  #environmentMW
When the factory was built, an attempt was made to highlight the local architecture. Santorini pumice was used as well as various volcanic stones. Thus, the building was integrated harmoniously and with absolute respect into the surrounding area.
Our basic rule as the Tomato Industrial Museum is to protect and preserve the Environment and not just through a like.

Day 6 : #HeritageMW
In this theme we have chosen to present you part of our own cultural heritage.
During your visit to the museum, there are videos with interviews of old workers, some of which you can see on our youtube channel. Every time one of them visits the museum, we see their smile, their emotion and they proudly tell us different stories.
