Unfortunately can't comment on the collection. Just a warning that the museum is currently closed for the winter (as of Oct 2) so maybe it closed at the end of September. Too bad, as there were loads of tourists around. So if you want to...More

Since the last review of this little museum in 2017, something has changed, which may make it more appealing: the entrance to the museum is now free. The museum is right in the centre of Agios Nikolaos, next to the tourist information bureau. When we...More

This museum is well worth a look round for two reasons, firstly to get a better understanding of the culture and secondly to split up the day with a little "inside" out of the sun time.

A good museum. Gives an insight into traditional dress and the way of a life not really seen in this modern age.

Not much is written in English and what is, doesn't give you a lot of information. You can't take pictures, would be more interesting if you knew more about the exhibits. I wouldn't recommend going.
