The Folklore Museum in Paxos was founded in 1996 and is housed in a traditional building dating back to 1906, characterized by a unique architecture and an amazing style. Besides collecting a variety of objects of daily life, traditional garments and tools linked to fishing, which allow to better understand the life of the inhabitants of Paxos, the Museum also houses prehistorical animals dating back to the Jurassic  period, as well as fire arms and armours dating back to the second world war.
Among the most important exhibitions we remember that about the Revolution of the Ionian Parliament for the annexation of the Ionian islands to the Greek state in 1864 and among the most important findings there is the book by the Austrian archduke Luigi Salvatore, describing Paxos in every detail, when he visited it in 1884 – 1885.
