Peloponnese Sights

Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation Museum

Updated 11/17/2011

Fodor's Review

This exemplary small museum focuses on textiles and displays outstanding costumes, handicrafts, and household furnishings. Many of the exhibits are precious heirlooms that have been donated by Peloponnesian families, and several rooms are painstaking re-creations of 19th-century Nafplion homes. The gift shop has some fascinating books and a good selection of high-quality jewelry and handicrafts, such as weavings, kilims, and collector folk items such as roka (spindles)

and wooden koboloi (worry beads).
