Folklore Museum

Λαογραφικό και Ιστορικό Μουσείο Μήλου, Πλάκα, Ελλάδα

Listing Description

Behind the church of Panagia Korfiatissa in Plaka, you will find the Folklore & amp; History of the Museum of Milos.
The museum was founded in 1967 by the “Union of the Athenian Apple” and in it you have the opportunity to learn about the life of the Apple after the 17th century (mainly from 1850 to 1930, which was a period of prosperity for the Milian society) .
By visiting this museum you will travel to another era, as you will see what an urban Maleki household was like in the 19th century. The museum is not a faithful representation of a type of male household, but starting from often diverse objects, the aspects of the life of the inhabitants of that time are illuminated: their occupations inside and outside the house, the influences from other places, their food and clothing preferences , the way they had fun, the organization of their space and time and the utilization of local resources.
This two-storey museum consists of the living room and the unique exhibits that exist in it, the work area where the loom is located, the kitchen of the house, the bedroom, the cellar (which also served as a warehouse for agricultural products), and the gallery which is a historical archive. In all these rooms you can also admire furniture, textiles, embroidery, clothes of that time, household utensils, decorative and everyday objects as well as old photos.
