This way exceeded my expectations. Costs 2e. Need around 20min. The artist who made the items takes the time to explain his process. I loved it!

Creativity expressed in a very inconvenient and entertaining way! Must visit in case you are in Xanthi. It only takes 30 minutes approximately but is a lifetime experience

Mind Expanding!

Stopped into this small museum located in Xanthi’s charming historic neighborhood. Upon arrival, I had no idea what type of art exhibit I would be seeing until one of the young ladies who worked there gave me a brief explanation. WOW!!! I have never, ever seen such an original, thought provoking art exhibition in my life! (I grew up in New York City and have seen my fair share of art and museums, not to mention having traveled the world visiting countless museums and art galleries, so this statement is really saying a lot). I will not even attempt to describe this exhibition, but simply say that one must go to appreciate this unique art. A bonus was meeting the artist and having him explain several of the pieces (with emphasis on the kinetic piece). Super nice guy and a great staff.

Mind blowing experience!

This tiny little place is somewhat like Alice in the wonderland!
To my mind, the artist behind these sculptures must be a genius to be able to imagine the exact shadow that will come out after illuminating the objects he made!
And in some cases, you could see different scenes from different angles of the same object!
I felt simply amazed and in awe with every new exposition object I was discovering!
Very kind and smiling keeper, the wife of the sculptor, an artist herself too.
Surely worth a visit if you are in Xanthi, don't miss it. It will take you less than 30 min to see it all.

Not an everyday experience. Unique way of art, expression and ability to use different materials combined with a rather mysterious and at the same time genius and precise craftsmanship! Extraordinary
