Folklore Museum


   The Folklore Museum of our city is a place that combines tradition and culture, which was completed thanks to the support of both donors and volunteers in order to save our tradition.

   It constitutes a new landmark not only for our town, but for residents of the wider region as well. A multitude of exhibits and rare old objects await the visitor’s eyes to be admired. The latters are given the chance to get to know our tradition, the daily life of farmers, fishermen and other social and professional classes, who used to live in the old Messolonghi. Tools that were used for cultivating and fishing, for food preparation and serving, old uniforms, such as the costume of Kitsos Tsavellas, clothes, a loom, photographs and furnitures, old radios, typewriters, sewing machines and many other things compose a scenery of another era, that make the visitors travel back in time.

   Amongst the most important exhibits are a sword of a Free Besieged that dates before 1826, the clarinet of great Margelis and the tabor of great musician Saleas.

  Apart from the above, there are also paintings of significant artists such as Prekas and Sorogas and of local painters like Mantas, Ada Moschandreou and many others.
