  • The Ethnological Museum of Thrace is housed in one of the few remaining architectural ornaments anymore of Alexandroupolis. The visit to the Museum brings you into contact with the multicultural character of Thrace. Acquaintance with the tradition, from the professions, the commodities up and clothing of the era and region. Among the artifacts, tools, objects, documents, costumes, religious relics of a bygone era. The Museum also has a small cafe and Museum shop. Several of the items for sale are copies of the Museum. The beautiful building is an example of the exceptional architecture of homes in Alexandroupolis, most of which have now been replaced by apartment buildings. Working at the Museum very polite and helpful.

  • Lovely neoclassical building. Impressive exhibits about the history of Thrace. Located in the Center so it's easy manageable.

  • Great museum with awesome collection. Good for a morning visit. Interesting to see how some things are similar with Turkish culture, proving how close our two countries are.  more »

  • I have the best experience of any museum in my life simply because of the guide. Although the museum artefacts looked ordinary the tour guide made them extraordinary explaining every detail with excitement and passion. I never felt bored or overloaded with facts, but learned about Thracian lifestyle through her stories. I would recommend museum for everyone even for kids - when I was a kid I really hated long guided tours, but this one was something else
  • cool place with a lot of history about the old silk road and Byzantine and ottoman cultures
  • The Ethnological Museum of Thrace was founded to preserve the historical memory in the wider geographical region of Thrace. Housed in a leased stone neoclassical building of 1899, in Alexandroupoli, on 14 may 63. Works since October 2002 and is a self-funded project. Funded partially from the Niarchos Foundation and the Ministry of culture. Working with the legal form of a civil non-profit Company.
