  • Wonderful experience of exploring the history of one of the most traditional objects in daily routines in Greek people. The meaning and purpose of the komboloi is very interesting but in Greece this hobby is mostly dedicated to men. For the museum I think it is not necessary to charge the entrance. However learning few things about this traditional habit it’s pretty much beautiful and not so easy to use the komboloi on a right way.
  • A unique opportunity to learn about komboloi and it's history. With more than 900 exhibits and a really well informed staff, this place is one of the few that still keep in touch with tradition and culture and help you become a part of it. Don't forget to spend some minutes at the Museum's shop, where you may find a new friend to relieve you from stress and anxiety...your own komboloi📿
