The Information Centre for the History and Maritime Tradition of Moudros was created at the old school building of Moudros, built in the late 19th century and used as an elementary school and county court. It is stone-built with carved cornerstones and has some neoclassical elements. Its planning and implementation were incorporated into the Operational Program “Crete and Aegean Island 2007 – 2013” and the project was assigned by the Municipality of Moudros in 2015. The infrastructure and the exhibition space were completed by the end of 2015.
The mission of the Information Centre for the History and Maritime Tradition of Moudros is to showcase the strategic importance of the area in the Balkan Wars era and the North Aegean islands liberation as well as during World War I when it served as an Entente base for the Gallipoli campaign.
The Information Centre for the History and Maritime Tradition of Moudros aims, by using its rich visual material, exhibits, audiovisual productions and interactive applications, to inform visitors about the two historical periods of the Balkan Wars and the Gallipoli campaign, where Moudros played an important part. Visotors have access to documents of the era, directly connected to the area and its history, while at the same time get a comprehensive picture of its importance for the ANZAC troops. Thus the Centre is a link between the other similar infrastructures of Lemnos as well as with the ANZAC veterans and their descendants that visit Moudros each year.
