Very simple museum is basically a house, yet gives you for free a nice window in the past how people lived especially in Spili. Interesting facts and many artefacts on display. Worth a visit and leave voluntarily 5 euro for keeping this place open.

A joyful museum with three rooms of an old house, displaying textiles (and an old wooden loom), costumes, rugs, other weaving, sewing machines, tools and equipment for farming, shoe-making, food preparation, etc. A lovely way to spend an hour or so contemplating bygone eras and...More

While in Spili it's worth a dip into this small museum which is really just a few rooms each with some interesting items. A friendly guide will take you around if he's not busy with other people. I think it would be improved by having...More

It said it was open but the doors were closed when we walked up. Luckily the caretaker saw us and took us on a tour which we enjoyed. Consisted mostly of relics from a typical house of 100 years ago. Also had a good collection...More

Every time we are in Spili we visit this little museum, just for the fun of it. The curator is the most enthousiastic you have ever met. And, every time we discover something new. A must visit when in Spili! You won't regret it.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area and you want a look behind the tourist set up. A glimpse of what has not long disappeared from village life in terms of occupations. Lots of old tools including weaving, chairmaking, shoemaking and farming....More

when it's open, it's a lovely way to spend 15 minutes. A bit more if the host gets out his Honey Raki, as he did for us at 10.15!

The museum is small, but the space is filled with artifacts from the local community. The curator gave us a very personable tour, and has excellent English skills. His knowledge and obvious pride in his community made the tour very enjoyable, as did the shot...More
