Santorini Folklore Museum: The Folklore Museum of Santorini is located in Kontohori, a suburb of Fira.
The Folklore Museum of Santorini is housed in an old cave house that dates back to 1861. This one-of-its-kind museum showcases a matured winery along with priceless artifacts made by indigenous carpenters and tinsmiths. The museum also boasts of a well-stocked library with numerous books and manuscripts of the Aegean world. This impressive museum is the brainchild of Manolis Lignos and it is in many ways a perfect replica of a quintessential santorinian house.
There is also a chapel inside, the Chapel of Agios Konstantinos, and a visit to this chapel will provide a fascinating insight into the wonderful church heritage of Santorini.
A visit to the museum offers significant insight into the culture, tradition, and heritage of the island of Santorini.

The Folklore Museum of Santorini is located in Kontohori, a suburb of Fira, just a 10-minute walk from the Central bus station and 8 minutes from a private parking lot.
Private transfers: We recommend using an online pre-booked Santorini transfer service, which provides transfer by taxi, minibus or private VIP car and arranging a pickup directly from your hotel. Alternatively, there’s the option of arranging a pickup by a local driver directly at the following numbers: 0030 690 679 4316, 0030 22860 22555.
Car rental: There’s the option of renting a car in Santorini with as little as 14.5 euro per day and pick it up directly from your hotel. You can then visit the Folklore Museum but also many other places of interest in Santorini.
Public transfers: Fira is where the central bus station of the island is located. There are bus connections between this bus station and the most areas of the island. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
