Museum of Greek Folk Art

The Museum of Greek Folk Art is made up of four buildings—the main building of the museum that covers the historical period of 1650 to the present day and features items of Greek folk art like sculptures, objects made of silver, puppet theaters and stone statues, the Tzisdarakis Mosque that shelters a collection of traditional ceramic objects from the early 20th century, the Bath House of the Winds, the only public baths from the 15th century that remain standing and the Museum at 22 Panos Street, the setting for exhibitions dedicated to the tools that were used to perform traditional works in ancient Athens.
