Spathario Museum Of ShadowTheatreFree: All time

Opened in 1995, Spathario is the first museum of shadow theatre in the world. The main intention of the Museum is not to show a “lifeless exhibition of shadows” or to screen Karagiozis figures from view and put them in big suitcases. On the contrary, the intention is to keep them alive in a permanent hospitable home in which all young and old visitors will be accepted to amuse themselves and leave satisfied.
