Folklore Museum of Afytos

Afytos Kassandra


The folklore museum based on artifacts donated by the villagers was founded in the 1980s. The museum was housed in a traditional listed building dating to 1889 in the centre of the village, which was donated by the Aletras family. The folklore collection includes domestic utensils, agricultural implements (for ploughing, sowing, reaping, harvesting), and pottery, which is a craft with a long tradition here.

The folklore collection accompanied by all or part of the collection of Karagiozis shadow-theatre puppets owned by the puppet-master Evyenios Spatharis. Spatharis's puppets were put on display in one of the rooms in the museum in the summer of 1999 and may still be seen by the public. There was also an exhibition of posters by Dimitris Arvanitis in August 1999.
