Chios Mastic Museum Attraction

The Chios Mastic Museum is located in the Mastichochoria, the only site in the Mediterranean where the mastic tree grows. The well organized modern museum aims to showcase the production history of the mastic tree cultivation through multimedia applications, documentaries, original machinery in functioning order and outdoor exhibition where visitors come into contact with the mastic tree. The permanent exhibition deals with Chios mastic as a unique natural product. In the introduction, we learn about shino and mastic, the resin that in 2015 was recognized as a natural medicine. In the first section we discover the traditional know-how of mastic cultivation. In the second section we observe how the management of mastic historically shaped the rural and inhabited landscape of southern Chios and Mastichohoria. In the third section we are informed about the cooperative exploitation and processing of mastic in recent times, which marks an important chapter in the productive history of Chios. Special mention is made of the uses with which mastic today travels around the world. The Mastic Museum is very close to Pyrgi village with free parking. The museum is open daily 10:00-17:00 except from Tuesday and the entry fee is 4 euros.
