FOLKLORE MUSEUM OF CHANIA – CRETAN HOUSE
The Folklore Museum of Chania is located at the center of the Old Town of Chania, on Halidon Street, next to the Catholic Church. It includes folklore and traditional exhibits that allow the visitor to picture how life was for the habitants of the island during the 18th and 19th century.
Among others, a collection of tools, raw materials and products of traditional home handicraft, small industry and rural life are also available in the museum. The visitor will be pleasantly surprised to witness models of rural occupations, home arts, craft-based work as well as examples of a typical interior of a rural house. Another fascinating feature of the museum is the workshop that revives the Cretan embroidery art and where embroidery paintings are being created.
