Collection-Exhibition area

 

The collection of the Museum consists of 5,000 items, an archive that includes 6,000 photos and 3,000 documents, 3,700 books and 450 records from field research. Part of the Museum collection is exhibited in the Museum and counts 500 pieces organized into the following thematic sections: The Museum exhibits cover the time period from the late 17th century up to the early 20th century.

The exhibited ethnological and historical collection is divided into two time lines:

Α) The progressive linear timeline of the historical presence in Thrace, that appears to be particularly accelerated, especially since the urbanization of the region during the 19th and for the most part in the 20th century.

B) The long idle period following the dissemination and seed cycle that is promptly tied to agricultural activities.

The Museum tour, based on the two timelines mentioned, consists of a guided video tour, historical exhibits, maps, photographic material, digital movie projections and supplementary information.
