  • The Museum of Folk Art and tradition "Angeliki Chatzimichali" is housed in a beautiful building, originally familiar to Angeliki Chatzimichali, in Plaka. This magnificent mansion, designed by architect A. Zacho, is really worth a visit. In the museum's premises are exhibited among other objects, costumes of the Greek popular culture as well as personal objects and the office of the pioneering great folklorist angelic Hatzimichali. Particularly important and interesting are the exhibits and references to Sarakatsani. The people of the museum are friendly, smiling and eager.

  • I visited the museum alone and the experience was quite discomforting. A man, museum clerk, as soon as I stepped into the first room he stood beside me and followed me throughout the visit. At every step I gave, the man was also very close, I did not feel comfortable to observe calmly and read the information in a place that had no more visitors. And he didn't even say anything, a hello, a space presentation, an explanation... Nothing, it was just a stakeout. A pity, the collection seemed interesting and the fact that the museum is free is an important bonus, but I could not stay more than five minutes in that suffocating environment. The way they embarrass visitors is disconcerting. I'm sure such behaviour is completely preventable.
