• Exhibits

Around 1,200 exhibits covering a chronological period stretching from 1870 to 1955 and combine elements of rural and urban folklore.  Visitors can see the loom weaving, the sofras (low table used for the family to eat, while seated cross-legged), the tub for kneading, agricultural tools and porcelain valuable objects, carved mirrors and sofas and striking garments of the wealthy ladies of the city.

The whole effort of the Museum in ongoing and always focused to present a more and more representative picture of the area. The message that tries to pass to the visitor is encompassed in the phrase of the French writer Dan Frank: “… talking about people of yesterday also means that you love the people of today. Because the memory is a reflection and the shadow a projection“.

  • Museum History

The museum opened in 1994 and it’s housed in a beautiful neoclassical building of 1899 which was donated by the wealthy tanner Georgios Vergis to the city of Kalovasi, in order to house a public pharmacy for the poor and needy people from the area. About a century later it’s changed character and it’s currently a museum dedicated to the preservation of the history of Karlovasi.
