    In the old town of Xanthi, is this important museum that takes us in Xanthi and the Thrace of old-time. The peculiarity of the building but also the value of the exhibits are a combination that makes a particular Museum. Here the visitor can easily understand that there is a combination of local Thrakiwtikwn, Eastern, and Western elements. Of particular interest are the paintings on the walls and on the ceiling of the Museum that were made in the late 19th century by someone Bavarian painter. Also, there are many elements and samples from tobacco production of earlier eras. Besides there are many objects associated with folklore and tradition.
