Archaeological & Folklore Museum of Symi
The Archaeological Collection of Symi is housed in a traditional Symian mansion of the Gianneski family, a dowry to N. K. Farmakidis, sponge trader and Deputy Consul of Austria-Hungary in Symi. In the museum's pebbled yard there are ancient and Early Christian sculptures on display, as well as urns from various periods. The museum is split into 5 sections (each one dedicated to a different period of time) and presents an archaeological, a Byzantine and a folklore collection. The representation of the inside of a traditional Symiot house with its dinning and living room as well as a collection of local costumes complement the exhibits.
