The Centre of Information and Interpretation of Eastern Mani is a modern city museum focusing on Mani, its history and its people. It is the result of team work and reflects the love of its people for their land and their cultural heritage as well as their need for development. It is housed at the old Girls’ School at the central square of Gytheio. It is a historic building that has always been an integral part of the life of the city.

The aim of the CIIEM is to inform visitors about Mani and interpret its unique and distinctive character for them. As a result, it is expected to offer numerous social, cultural, touristic, economic and development benefits to the Municipality of Eastern Mani, the county of Laconia as well as the whole of the Peloponnese.
