Filippos Argentis Museum information
Lonely Planet review
The idiosyncratic Filippos Argentis Museum, in the same building as the impressive Korais Library, contains embroideries, traditional costumes and portraits of the wealthy Argenti family. Born in Marseilles in 1891, Argentis devoted his life to researching the history of Chios and wrote many significant works.
