Arsos Folk Art Museum

The Folk Art Museum of the mountainous village of Arsos was founded in 1997 and is housed in a restored 18th century residence, which is a listed Ancient Monument.

The museum showcases the daily life and traditions of the inhabitants of the area, which is primarily a wine-producing region. The many exhibits include tools, furniture and utensils from days past that are related to viticulture and other local occupations.

Notable exhibits include a boiler used for the production of the alcoholic drink of ‘zivania’, and a winemaking presentation in the cellar, where the traditional ‘linos’ is preserved with large clay jars, presser and other traditional winery tools.

There is also a permanent exhibition of old photos taken during significant past events and occasions, whilst the building periodically hosts temporary exhibitions of photography and art, as well as hosting other events.
