Municipal Museum of Soufli

All the modern history of the town of Soufli, through the residents’ daily life, is presented in the collections of the Municipal Museum of Soufli.

The building that houses the museum’s collections is the 1890 Brika Mansion of rare architectural beauty. It was constructed to house the family and its silk businesses. The Brika family was involved in sericulture, storage and production of silkworm seeds, creating one of the most important Silk Houses in the area. The building was donated to the Municipality of Soufli in 1991, so as to be created the Municipal Museum of Soufli.

Vintage photos, original documents and files record the history frame by frame.
