The Ethnographic Museum of Larissa is the largest folklore museum in Thessaly, as well as one of the largest and most interesting museums of this kind in Greece.
In 1974, the city was founded a public organization engaged in the collection and study of information on the history of culture and traditions of Thessaly. Actually, thanks to the active work of this organization, the first collection was collected, which laid the foundation for the creation of the Ethnographic Museum of Larisa. The museum itself was officially founded in 1981 and two years later finally opened its doors to visitors.
Today, the collection of the Ethnographic Museum contains about 20,000 exhibits, most of which date back to the 19th - 20th centuries ... The exposition of the museum perfectly illustrates all aspects of culture, as well as the life and life of the population of Thessaly. Here you can see various products made of wood, ceramics, bronze and silver, clothes and accessories, household utensils, furniture, tools related to a wide variety of professions, church relics, documents and photographs, musical instruments and much more. Of particular interest are the collection of engravings dating from the 15th century, the famous prints from Tirnavos, old agricultural tools and equipment, and an excellent collection of traditional costumes.
