Folklore Museum Didymoteichio

The original collection which forms the nucleus of the museum was started by teachers in the region in 1966 while working in the 2nd Primary School of Didymoteichou, to preserve the area’s folklore. In 1973 the Cultural Association "Folklore Museum Didymoteichou” was founded and folklore exhibits were transferred to the Hatzirvassanis neoclassical building which was built in 1900 at the of corner Vatatzes and Kolokotronis. The building was bought by the Ministry of Culture. Up to now it accommodates the Museum. The Board of Governors consists entirely of teachers. In the Museum one can see traditional costumes of the region, other clothing which is embroidered and woven, household bedding, traditional jewelry, religious items, paintings and utensils, agricultural tools and weaving tools, tools used by traditional craftsmen of the area like carpenters, blacksmiths and shoemakers, and machines for dying textile fibres.
