Art of Silk Museum in Soufli

A more recent addition to the silk museums in Soufli is the Art of Silk Museum belonging to the Tsiakiris Family Silkmills. Opened in September 2008 in a renovated Neoclassical building (1886) on the main thoroughfare of the town, it displays the full sequence of sericulture (with live silkworms on show most of the year) and presents the industrial side of silk manufacture and weaving, incorporating fully functional machinery and exhibits from the Tsiakiris factory and videos of the various stages and methods of production. It features both live and electronically assisted guided tours (available in Greek, English, French, German, Russian and Turkish). Guided tours are also given in English and Greek.

There is a museum shop where you can buy silk fabrics of outstanding quality. The shop sells ties, shirts, scarfs, shawls handkerchiefs, robes for women and all kinds of useful accessories plus a range of locally produced items such as wine and Tsipouro for which the area is renowned.

The museum has easy access for visitors with special needs with ramps, a lift and dedicated toilet facilities.
