A unique and excellent museum, warm atmosphere, does not feel you're in a museum, but in a private home, with an amazing collection of Greek costumes, dated from the past. The owner greeted us in person, an amazing woman, who deserves immense congratulations. A MUST to visit, highly recommend it.

A modern gem displaying traditional costumes

Words are not enough to explain to you just how much of a statement this museum makes! Right from the exterior you know you’re about to see something splendid yet when you walk in through the doors you stand and I mesmerized by the ambience - the music in the background and the lighting and fixtures that display these wonderful costumes truly do them justice. I expense was spared in anything and it shows. Don’t miss out on visiting this wonderful museum!

I am very happy to have visited this place! The costumes are amazing, but what is even more amazing is how modern, yet traditional this museum is. I believe that anyone visiting Kalamata could only benefit by a visit to this museum!

Wonderful collection of Greek folk costumes. Stunningly displayed and curated. Friendly and helpful staff who gave us an iPad to walk around with which displayed dresses in detail and with notes. Funded by tobacco money, I understand which is the only drawback!

Beautifully curated museum
Jul 2019 • Couples
I was delighted to have, firstly, found a museum on traditional Greek Costumes that was actually open (in July / hight of summer), and moreover had a very extensive collection of costumes from a variety of periods and locations. It was expertly curated, certainly put together by people with excellent design sense and consideration for good flow. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, could more than answer our questions and reflect on interesting tidbits of history. What a delight! It also has a small museum shop with some nice momentos, jewellery as well as pends and notepads. I highly recommend a visit.
