Helmi’s Natural History Museum is located in the small village of Agia Marina close to the centre of the island. It’s just under 13km from the islands capital Zakynthos Town
and that should usually take around 20 minutes to drive.
A visit to Helmi’s Natural History Museum will uncover the remarkable flora and fauna indigenous to the area. Explore the island’s natural heritage among collections with over 1,500 samples of birds, fish, shells, fossils, rocks, and minerals. This educational attraction is also a hit with kids.
The museum costs 6€ per person but if you come as part of a large group, 10 or more, then you get in half price.
The opening hours are from 9am to 5pm in the summer months which is from mid April to the end of October and by appointment the rest of the year.
Getting to Helmis Museum is simple as it’s just off the main road that leads through the village. Once there you’ll see a small car park that usually has spaces available, if not there’s some room on the roadside.
