The Folklore Museum or the Cretan House is located in the entrance of the Catholic Church, on Halidon Street in the old town of Chania. It is the creation of two remarkable women, Mrs. Bikakis Aspasia, and Mrs. Koumandrakis Eirini.
The two women, with great passion and love for the Cretan tradition, created a beautiful place where one can see impressive exhibits and get acquainted with the traditional Cretan culture.
The visitor will admire the impressive woven and embroidery created by their founders and students themselves and are faithful copies of embroidery that they have been able to collect from all over Crete. In addition, the visitor will admire embroidered paintings depicting manners and customs, and scenes from the everyday life of the island.
