Silk Museum


Although it's not nearly as good as the other industry-themed Piraeus Bank museums around Greece, nor as detailed as the nearby Art of Silk Museum, this small exhibit does fill out Soufli's story with some fascinating video interviews with people who laboured as silk processors. It also explains the town's architecture, so after a visit you'll be able to spot the old kouklospita (house-factories) around town.
