Museums

The Folk Museum of Andritsaina was established by the Cultural Asociation of Women of Andritsaina in 1981. Some women from Andritsaina who wanted to show "the soul of their place" were driven by the hack value, the love for the place they live in, their anxiousness for saving heir cultural heritage and above all the team work joined their forces and established a Folk Museum at their home, Andritsaina.
