Overview

The Folklore Museum of Acharavi in Corfu was inaugurated in October 2008. It is located just opposite the Roman baths of Acharavi in a private building of 1,000 sq.m. The museum was an inspiration and creation of Spyros Vlachos, who searched and found interesting folk items of northern Corfu to display there.The permanent collection of the museum is diplayed in two rooms. It includes old photos, books and manuscripts that date from 1862, coins from the period of the Ionian State , wooden folk furniture, loom, traditional olive press, kitchen utenslis, agricultural tools, watermill, ecclesiastical items and other exhibits that present the historical course of Corfu from the 18th century till today. The museum also has a conference room where lectures and seminars take place, a traditional coffee shop as well as a permanent exhibition of traditional products and woven handicrafts.

Clearly money and effort has been spent on the museum. Unfortunately, in my opinion it's one to miss. The exhibits and displays are disjointed and it's basically a collection of 'old stuff' with little rhyme or reason. The staff are incredibly helpful and enthusiastic.
