SKOPELOS MUSEUM

The Folklore Museum of Skopelos is housed in one of the mansions of Skopelos from the 18th century. The building was originally built in 1795 but had a lot of damage in the 1963 earthquakes so it was restored to its old glory in 1971.

In the museum you can see how a household of the previous century would look like. There are original embroideries and hand-carved furniture that were donated to the museum from the older generation of the island. You can also see the traditional outfit of Skopelos . There is also a great selection of knives, small replicas of boats, ceramics and paintings contributions from the families of the island.

It is well worth visiting the museum since you can get a glimpse inside the life of a traditional Skopelos family and also get a sense of the great artwork that the people of Skopelos have created.
