Directions to Tomato's Industrial Museum
The old tomato plant of D.Nomikos at the waterfront of Vlychada beach is turned into a modern industrial museum to offer its guests a flashback, following the course of cultivation, processing and production of tomato, one of the most famous and traditional products of Santorini.
In the museum, the visitor is familiar with traditional methods followed by local farmers of Santorini, while knowing the history of the place, its inhabitants and their traditions.
The exhibits include processing machinery since 1890, old manuscripts of works, old tools, the raw tags, and audio-visual material with taped narratives of people who worked in the factory.
Carved into the Santorinian landscape right in front of the sea, surrounded by volcanic sand dunes flattened by the strong Aegean winds, domes, vaults, interior and exterior industrial premises in the early 20th century, this is a rare industrial museum in Greece, waiting for all visitors to explore.
Inside the factory there is an Art Shop with selected samples of modern Greek design, small works of art, jewelry, books and music, as well as local products from small producers.
