Cretan Folk Museum

There is a folklore museum since 1981 at Agios Georgios village with lots of objects and exhibits of cultural interest. The museum is divided into two parts. The first one presents the old, last century province house. The objects are placed so that the folk architecture and decoration are presented in a utilitarian way. A lot of the old professions are also exhibited (farrier, blacksmith, shoemaker, carpenter).
