The Museum opened in 1986 and since 2000 it has been housed in a building given by the village’s former Mayor and maintained by the current Mayor.

The Museum now works on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 to 5, the collections are categorized and the visitors are provided with informational material on every item, so that they are aware of each item’s history.

Among the items there are rural objects, traditional costumes and other things people used in their daily life, like tools and utensils.

However, there is still a maintenance problem, as none of the items has ever been maintained since the Museum opened its doors. In order to help solve this problem, students from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens do their internships at the Museum in order to help preserve the Greek cultural inheritance.
