Folklore Museum of Halkida

Housed in a restored Venetian fortification, Halkida’s Folklore Museum offers visitors a chance to see what country and city life was like long ago.

The first wing of the museum features women’s costumes and other examples of traditional garments, tools, religious icons and paintings along with traditional musical organs of the region. The museum’s second wing has been converted into a “city scene” and features furniture and decorations from a variety of homes throughout Halkida during the last century, as well as reconstructions of shops and workshops complete with original tools. Likewise, the third wing shows what a village home would have looked like decades ago, with agrarian tools and household wares.
