The Agios Nikolaos Folklore Museum was established in 1978 in partnership with the Cultural Society of Eastern Crete. It is located on the ground level of the Port Authority building. Although this museum is modest, it has a wealth of intriguing artifacts that represent life on Crete throughout its recent history.
There are several kitchenware and pieces of furniture from the early and mid-twentieth centuries. Local costumes, traditional fabrics, and wooden carvings are also on display. There are also several icons depicting the Cretan people’s religious feelings, as well as antique manuscripts and rare literature.
You will also get the opportunity to tour a fully equipped and decorated typical Cretan bedroom. This folk art museum houses two private collections, one presented by Mrs. Chrysoula Xanthoudides-Koundourou and the other by General Ioannis Alexakis.
