Karlovassi Folklore Museum

The Historical and Folklore museum of Karlovasi opened in 1994. It's exhibits cover a period that extends from 1870 until 1955 and in essence combine agricultural and urban elements.
Taking into account that Karlovasi already from the beginning of the 20th century hosted a flourishing and pioneering urban class that emerged from the establishment of tanneries and tobacco factories, while at the same the elements of agricultural culture remained alive, the visitor can see beside the loom the textiles, the kneading tub, agricultural tools, porcelain decorative objects of great value, carved mirrors, couches and impressive outfits that the ladies of the upper class used to wear.
