Corfu Costume Museum
Located just outside the hilltop village of Pelekas is this wonderful private collection of costumes dating back to the 19th century. Originating from both Corfu and the rest of Greece, the collection has been amassed over many years by the museum's curator and is housed in her family home.
It is a fascinating portrayal of the many different styles of costume worn in mainland Greece and its islands and provides a unique opportunity to appreciate the work and artistry that went into their manufacture. As well as costumes, there is a small section dedicated to Corfu's musical heritage.
The museum is open each day from 10.00 to 14.00 (other hours by appointment) and entrance costs two euros. Groups are most welcome.
