DIEXODOS Center of Culture and Art, is a living cultural cell of Western Greece, which highlights the local artistic life.
This building was the historic home of Athanasios Razi-Kotsika, military commander- general of the Messolonghi combatants, during the heroic Exodus. In 1998 it was bought by lawyer Nikos Kordossis, who, willing to rescue the building, undertook the cost of its restoration. The museum hosts a permanent collection, which includes historical relics, antiquities, rare manuscripts and engravings, sculptures and paintings. Moreover, all kinds of cultural events take place here, such as exhibitions, presentations and speeches.
