The Historic & Folklore Museum of Antiparos was created from the sensitivity and love for cultural elements related to the area and by extension to Cyclades and the Aegean. This sensitivity and will to offer and create, led the family of Alexandros Kontogiorgos in collaboration with Municipality of Antiparos to create this museum.
The family of A. Kontogiorgos donated to the Municipality of Antiparos, the cultural objects derived from ANTHEMIO museum, a creation of long-lasting and strenuous efforts of Kiriaki Ragousi. Municipality of Antiparos provided and formed the building and the other operations required for such an attempt.
The result is considered unique for the cultural standards of the area. The collections that will be enriched with new items through time, are exhibited in an elegant and spacious building. The cultural items consist of sets (collections) with significant historic and scientific value for Antiparos and the wider area.
