This is a charming museum. At €2 pp it's a bargain! Several floors of exhibits, particularly clothing and furniture from 19th century on. It gave a fascinating insight into life in this period.

All the styles of clothing and decoration during the last 3 centuries. In 2 floors u can see that traditional fashion & culture of art was made out of everyone's everyday needs. Only for 2€. Worth seeing!

It is not by chance that this museum has won the European award for best museums. Although not big in size, it has a unique collection of local costumes from around Greece dated from 19th and early 20th century. Excellent light, very interesting objects in...More
