    The museum, a donation by Vassilis and Irini Moskovis
    to the City of Athens, is housed in a two-storey building in Sepolia and features
    a significant element of our national heritage which focuses on the remote Dodecanese
    island region, and particularly the isle of Symi.

     

    The museum contains a diverse selection of Dodecanese folk art and tradition, such as gold-embroidered
    costumes, wood-carved home interiors, embroidery, textiles, dishes, silver
    items, icons and household utensils, all of which are assorted throughout 20 rooms
    and auxiliary areas.

     

    The museum also includes an important collection of
    modern Greek art, works by foreign artists, an impressive library and literary
    works penned by the benefactor.

     

    In September 1996, the City of Athens
    assumed the responsibility for continuing the work of Vassilis Moskovis and renovated
    the exterior of the building and begun to organise tours for students and other
    interested parties.
