The Folk Art Museum of Arsos, located in a mountainous village, was established in 1997 and occupies a beautifully restored 18th-century residence, recognized as a historical Ancient Monument.

The museum offers insights into the daily life and customs of the area's inhabitants, who primarily engage in wine production. Within its halls, visitors can explore an array of exhibits featuring tools, furniture, and utensils from bygone eras, all associated with viticulture and other local trades.

Of particular interest are notable displays like a boiler once utilized in the production of the alcoholic beverage called 'zivania,' and a captivating winemaking presentation in the cellar. In this presentation, the traditional 'linos' is preserved, complete with large clay jars, presses, and other tools used in the traditional winemaking process.

Additionally, the museum boasts a permanent exhibition featuring old photographs capturing significant past events and occasions. Moreover, the venue regularly hosts temporary exhibitions showcasing photography and art, in addition to various other events.
