Folk Art Museum of Natural History of Skoufas


The museum of Skoufas

The museum of Natural History of Skoufas is at the west part of the bridge of Arta and is at distance of 1 km. from the city. It is housed in a newclassic owned of 1864 which was built by an Austrian achitector. In the beggining it was a barrack, later it became an outpost for the passage from the bridge and a turkish customs when the greek borders were at Arachthos. Finally, it was given by the Ministry of Finance to “Skoufas” association. It was renovated and since 1983 is open as a folk art museum with a large number of exhibits (because of the lack of space many of them have been stored).
