Traditional Pottery
The Museum of Traditional Pottery is housed in a beautiful neo-classical building, built in 1875. In the rooms of the museum, one can see the different types of workshops, which used to operate in various areas of Greece, like Crete, Cyclades, Lesbos and Messenian Gulf.

Some of the workshops produced small objects, using the foot-operated wheel. Others made large vessels, without the use of a wheel or others made large vessels too on a type of hand-operated wheel.

Replicas, a big variety of objects, as well as maps, plans, photographs, texts and extensive audio-visual means will help people comprehend the whole access of pottery production.

Ceramic masterpieces (made by traditional patterns), books... are found in Museum Shop, beside the Museum Cafe.
