Andros | Folklore & Christian Museum of Andros

Get a glimpse of how Andriots used to live in the past at the Folklore and Christian museum


The old Mantzavelaki ice factory at the entrance of Chora has been restored and turned into a folklore and religious museum to show a typical urban Andros house with cellar, while also highlighting local products and professions. The upper area of the building that served as a mill is dedicated to Christian Art from the 18th to the early 19th century. During that period, great Andriot painters, whose works are still preserved in various churches of the island, excelled (Theodosios, Nicholaos Mintrinos, D. Bernardis and others).The first floor is divided into three sub-sections that exhibit local church hagiography, ecclesiastical goldsmith artifacts and wood carved iconostases from churches of Andros.
