The Folklore Museum in Kalymnos Greece, Dodecanese: The Traditional House of Kalymnos is a private folklore museum that was established by Mrs. Faneromeni Skylla, a woman who has loved Kalymnos a lot and wanted to show visitors the traditional life on the island. This museum is located 1,5 km from Pothia Town, on the road to Vothini.

The exhibits include local costumes, bridal dresses, houseware, a loom, a spindle, a hand mill, pottery jugs, and traditional furniture, like the krevatos, the large family bed with a baby cot above it. Visitors can also see old coins, books, letters, weapons, and swords. The staff of the museum will offer you the local wine anama and bread. They can also inform you about the customs of Kalymnos.
