Exhibits

The exhibits of the museum are timed from the late 17th century to the early 20th.The ethnological and historical material on display is organized along two timelines

a. A linear progressive timeline that traces the historical presence of settlements in Thrace, and

b. The protracted span of motionless time that follows the cycle of sowing and harvest and is directly associated with agricultural activities.

The visitor explores these two timelines through the exhibits on display: objects,maps, photographs, digital projections and ancillary historical material.
