Ethnographical Historical Museum

    The Ethnographical Historical Museum of Larissa is a legal entity of private law. It was established in 1974, when a small team of Larissians founded the Ethnographical Society of Larissa, respecting their place, its tradition and history.

   From 1974 until 1981 the Ethnographical Society and the Museum are housed in the Town Hall. It collects museum material and organizes ethnographical exhibitions at the Museum.

   Since 1983 the Ethnographical Society and the Museum are housed to a 300m2 rented ground floor exhibition hall, with store-room of equal size and secontary halls at 74 Mandelara str. In 1993 the Ethnographical Society incorporated with the Museum, which was renamed to Ethnographical Historical Museum of Larissa. The Museum is located in the same place until today but soon is going to move to its new building which was constructed particularly to house its collections.

  The Ethnographical Historical Museum of Larissa is managed by a five - member board directed by Lena Gourgioti, archaeologist - ethnographer, who was the pioneer of the Museum's foundation with the help of her husband, Georgios Gourgiotis.

The Museum includes:

  • Permanent exhibition hall
