International Folklore Festival Museum: The foundation of the Museum was decided by the Administrative Council of the Municipal Cultural Centre of Lefkada in order to create a permanent exhibition of the mementos of the (then) fifty years old International Folklore Festival (1962 – 2012). The exhibition was scientifically supported by the Folklore Centre of the Academy of Athens.
The exhibition includes objects that are either directly connected with the festival events, such as musical instruments, traditional costumes, records and tapes of traditional music, medals and flags or are parts of commemorative presents of the dance groups that participated in the festival, indicative of the country of origin, such as dolls with traditional costumes, textiles, music records, crystals, souvenirs, information leaflets etc.
