MANOS FALTAITS MUSEUM ON THE ISLAND OF SKYROS
Established in 1964, the Faltaits Museum was one of the first local historical folk art museums. It embraces the history and the culture of Skyros from the post Byzantine period to the present day. It was created in a move to preserve the traditional Skyrian inheritance and also to make the point to the rest of Greece, that tradition had a part to play in both the present and the future.
Housed in the residence of the "Faldai" family, the museum dominates the north-east edge of the town on the site where an ancient temple use to be. It stands in the biggest tower, known locally as "Paleopyrgos", on the very ancient Pelasgian walls of Skyros.
