Korgialenio Historical and Folk Art Museum is housed in the same building as Korgialenos Library.
Founded in 1962, the museum exhibits everyday objects, clothes, manuscripts, tools, utensils, ecclesiastical objects, icons and other items dating from the 15th to the late 19th centuries. You will also find a collection of photographs depicting Kefalonia before and after the earthquakes of the 20th century, as well as the reconstruction of various structures that collapsed.
The museum's collection is of great cultural importance for Kefalonia, exhibiting objects that represent the island's diverse social and cultural background.
The island's culture has been heavily influenced by the Venetians, the Turks, the British and other peoples that left their mark on the local history.
