Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation Museum
The excellent Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation Museum examines life in Nafplion in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum, located inside a neoclassical house, has collections of folk costumes, everyday household items, beautiful textiles and looms. Take note of the rare sperveri tents, embroidered tents that were once draped around the beds of married couples to provide privacy in small houses with shared spaces. The attached gift shop sells local handicrafts.
