Museum Description
The Museum was founded in 1965 by Eugene Spatharis and includes his own and his father's collections, dating from 1947. There are also Greek and foreign-language books on the shadow theatre, and the puppet theatre, as well as posters, programmes, press cuttings.

The Meseum will house a retrospective exhibition of figures and accessories of the Greek shadow theatre from 1860 to the present. The Museum's aim is to develop its educational character, that is to make the subject more widely known to the general public and to inform the younger generation about the various phases and historical development of this art of the Greek traditional and folk theatre.
