The Folk Museum of the “Nicolaos Demetriou Intellectual Foundation”

One of the main aims of the “Nicolaos Demetriou Intellectual Foundation” was to found a Folk Museum, an aim that was effectuated in late 1990s’ when the Museum opened to the public. The museum is hosted in a building which is property of the private tourist company that founded it.

The Folk Museum is part of a general project of a “tourist village”, with houses retaining features of the traditional architecture of Samos. All these features are in harmony with the exhibits of the museum and form a complex that clearly shows to the visitors how everyday life was in the past. Thus, the visitor sill see stone paved streets, stone fences, courtyards with ovens, laundry rooms, wells with windlasses and other facilities of the epoch.

In the museum’s shop the visitor will find several interesting souvenirs and objects as postcards, visual material and editions.

Access to the museum is pretty easy by public buses, as well as by private means (car and motorbikes); for those staying in the area, access is possible also on foot.
