The foundation of the Gyzi  Megaron Museum in Santorini was from the beginning one of the main aims of the homonymous cultural centre which was founded towards the end of 70s with the initiative and financial support of the Catholic Diocese of Thira.

In its renovated rooms on the ground floor of the historical mansion of the Venetian family Gyzi, where in the finest possible way the distinctive architecture of the Greek islands of the 18th century is restored, artefacts are exhibited (documents, paintings, photographs, and other miscellaneous artefacts) which enlighten important aspects of the tempestuous history of Santorini from the Venetian domination up to present time, thanks to the valuable archives of the Catholic Diocese of Thira.
