Andreas Peri Papageorgiou Museum of Traditional Dress, Limni:
opened in August, 2010 – this is a unique and extensive collection of national dress that has been collected over the last 50 years. It highlights the everyday outfits that were worn throughout all of Greece, demonstrating regional styles and colors as well as what people would wear before and after marriage. This is a very important collection not just for Limni, but for all of Greece.
For those interested in textiles and traditional dress, the Hellenic Association of America has published two coffee table books on this collection as well.
