(4 votes)

46 Chalidon Street 41, Chania

In the old city center of Chania there is the private Folk Museum "Cretan House", which was founded by the passion of two women, Aspasia Bikaki and Irini Koumandraki. Through the themes of the museum unfolds the life and daily activities of the people in the countryside until the first half of the 20th century. Of particular interest are the textiles and embroidery in the museum which are creations of its founders and their students. These are replicas of rare embroidery that they managed to gather from all over Crete. Equally important are the embroidery tables depicting scenes from the local customs.
