In the heart of Mylopotamos village, visitors can find the Folklore Museum of Kea. The exhibits are housed in an old building made out of rock and wood. The place was constructed in 1845, the same year as the road that links the port with the capital. The building was previously functioning as an inn hosting travelers. Today, the museum aims to preserve and promote the local heritage and boasts a plethora of exhibits.

These include:
• Objects of domestic use
• Traditional house ornaments
• Old agriculture tools
• Traditional costumes
• An improvised hydroelectric mechanism (constructed in the island’s Enamel Factory in 1950)
• Photographs

Outside the museum, you can find a stone amphitheater among the beautiful orange trees.
There, events like honey, wine, and fairy tales-festivals take place during the summer. Visitors can participate in the festivals and come closer to Kea’s cultural traditions.
