Sinarades Folk Museum

The museum is located in an old two storey house in the traditional village of Sinarades, 14 kilometres from Corfu Town.

The first floor has been preserved much as it was between 1860 and 1960 and is representative of village houses in the region. There is a "portigo" (entrance), a kitchen, a dining room, a hall and a bedroom, each containing its respective furniture and utensils.

On the second floor is a library, an archive of old documents and some small collections. A little further up the stairs is a museum exhibiting a collection of costumes, musical instruments, agricultural and household tools, lamps, scales, a cobbler's workshop, ceramics, fishing equipment and a children's corner

The museum is open daily (May to October), except for Mondays, from 9.30am till 2.00 pm (tel. 26610-54962).

Could be combined with Pelekas Costume Museum and Paramonas.
