Get a glimpse of Myconos' past in the Folklore Museum at Chora


The Myconos Folklore Museum is located in the Venetian Castle (also known as "Kastro") district of the island, close to the Paraportiani church in Chora. The museum is a storehouse of 19th century antiquities housed in an old double-storey whitewashed building, that used to be the 18th century home of "Captain Malouchos", a characteristic sample of Cycladic architecture. Items on display at the museum are vintage furniture, ancient tools and ceramic works, historical photographs anf traditional musical instruments. You can also visit the restored kitchen as well as a fully furnished 19th century bedroom. The museum has also won acclaim for its fine collection of paintings of the Greek War of Independence of 1821. A visit to the Mykonos Folklore Museum gives a fascinating glimpse of the island's rich past.
