The Folk Museum of Agios Nikolaos

The small Folk Museum of Aghios Nicolaos is housed at the ground floor of the Port Authority’s building, just beside the bridge of the canal connecting the Voulismeni Lake with the sea. Several utensils, vessels and furniture of everyday use, dated in the early and mid 20 th century are displayed in the museum.

The loom and the “sofas”, that is to say the traditional bedroom of the Cretan house, are some of the most interesting exhibits of the museum. You will also see several kitchen utensils and vessels, arms, tools, local folk costumes, hand-woven textiles, embroidery with traditional motifs, wood-carved objects, icons and numerous small pieces which will show you aspects of the everyday life of the Cretan people of past times.
