Faltaits Museum

Faltaits Museum


The Museum was founded in 1964 by Manos Faltaits and is one of the first local historical and folklore museums in Greece, as well as the most significant attraction with national reputation. It was created to save the traditional heritage of Skyros in order to pass on the message to the Greek state that the present and the future must be “attached“ to tradition.

It dominates in the NE edge of the city and is built on the largest tower of the ancient Pelasgian walls of Skyros. Also, it is housed in the old “Falntai‘ mansion, whose roots are lost in Byzantium.
