History of Metsovo
Jan 2020
We visited the house of Baron Tositsa-Averoff. Had a guided tour privately. Not too many people visit this musuem. It is a shame cause you learn the history behind this great Baron who contributed to what is now Metsovo.
A must see.

We visited the art gallery of Metsovo and we find it very interesting. We had a guided tour and we learn many things about many painters and their work. We strongly recommend a visit when you will travel to Metsovo.

What a treasure!
Jul 2019 • Family
A spectacularly good small museum with a collection focusing on local artists of the 20th and 21st centuries (with a bit of late 19th). Every piece seems well-chosen; the decades and styles are well represented into the contemporary era. We were particularly thrilled to discover the photographer Costas Balafras, who captured village life in Epirus, and the prolific and fascinating sculptor Theodoros Papagiannis, whose pieces line the Ioannina waterfront and who has his own wonderful museum in the nearby village of Elliniko.

Bonus: a children's art room, where local schoolchildren come regularly (from the looks of the sophisticated art on display), and where our 8-year-old was able to spend some time drawing after she'd had enough of looking at art.

Dear Mr. Eric Thank you so much for your visit and your comments for our museum, the permanent exhibition which displays a selection by the foremost Greek artists and the Balafas' Photography Exhibition which offers an insightful look into Metsovo life in the 1960s and 1970s. We are very happy that your daughter was free to experiment and create her own work of art. We hope to welcome you again! Best regards Betty Karatza

This is a small but beautifully balanced gallery which includes historic interest relating to Metsovo alongside modern art pieces, sculptures and photography. Well worth visiting during a stay in Metsovo.

Metsovo is a town full of lovely surprises and the Averoff is perhaps the biggest. The 19/20th century collection in terms of quality is on par with other European collections of a similar size, except the artists are all Greek and I had never heard of them! Varied, intriguing and definitely worth €3 entry fee!

A MUST visit !!!
Dec 2017 • Family
This is for sure one of the best Art Galleries around the whole country with a collection of Gyzi, Lytra and many more artists. If you are visiting Metsovo this is a must stop for you !!! It will be an interesting experience even if you are not the most passionate art lover. Also in some days of the week kids are gathering to do some workshops about art so you can ask about that in advance.
