The museum is a family's private collection of important historical artefacts, documents and the very important local folk art that is still going strong to this day. Housed in the family's home and lovingly displayed local pottery, needlework and woodwork that the island is famous for, plus a rather strange and eclectic art made and collected by the most recent...

We visited the Faltaits museum, which used to be the family home. The artist's wife still is a docent there. We were unfamiliar with his work, but found the collection of antiques and artwork there very interesting. It was also interesting to see the layout of the traditional house.

Absolutely packed with items of great historical and folklore importance. An old manor, which has been renovated to house all these articles, and which is situated in a place with an amazing view. Worth visiting, and it is funded by the petty 2euro entrance fee and the sales from their little souvenir shop.

Just go there and commune quietly with Anastasia (the owner). There is too much to describe and too much to 'feel' - so using few words cannot do it justice - JUST GO THERE!!!!

I loved the house, an old family house adapted to the first museum of local culture and history in modern Greece. The textiles and objects were fascinating, as was the exhibition of the materials compiled by the current proprietors' father in the war in Asia Minor in 1921 -23. A tragic time. Well worth a visit!
