The Orpheus Folklore Museum in Lefkada was founded by the Musical and Literature Association Orpheus, which also runs a radio station, a choir, a musical and a theatrical school on the island. The museum opened its doors in 1978.

Its collections include important exhibits of objects and items from the everyday life of the Lefkadian people, e.g. dresses, tools, textiles, looms and hand-made items, among others. In addition, the Orpheus Folklore Museum has a room modified to look exactly like a traditional Lefkadian house, in order to get a better idea of the island's culture.

Alternatively, you can book your taxi online.

Car rental: There's the option of renting a car in Lefkada and picking it up directly from Aktion Aiport (in Preveza) or your hotel. Using a rental car allows visitors to discover the Orpheus Folklore Museum and many other places of interest in Lefkada at their own pace.

Public transport: The central bus station of the island is located at Lefkada Town. There are bus connections between this station and most areas on the island. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
Tip: Since buses don't always stop at 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.
