The women who constitute the Women’s Cultural Association of Spili, wishing to reinforce the cultural life and the folk tradition of their town, worked passionately and established the Folklife Museum of Spili, which has been housed in a two-story traditional house since 2011.
These women have collected objects which had been almost extinct from the village, maintained them and positioned them in the rooms of the ground-floor with the aid of Vorrin Museum Manager Mr. Vilianos, offering visitors a glimpse to traditional Cretan homes, while there is also an event room on the first floor. The exhibition includes farming tools, cobbler tools, a loom, traditional utensils etc. and the women have never ceased collecting objects with which many people – mostly the youth – are unfamiliar, to enrich the collection.
