Angelos returned to his home

About the museum

The Sikelianos house, which accommodates the homonym museum, was purchased by the National Bank of Greece in 2009. It was renovated and formed into a pioneering museum that was donated to the Municipality of Lefkada and was inaugurated on October 6, 2017.

It is a special museum that not only exhibits memorabilia of the Alafroískïotos1 poet but also makes the visitor travel into every aspect of his life and work through a pioneering architectural and museological approach, work of a group of distinguished scientists.

In its space someone can find exhibits related to the life and work of Sikelianos, which were donated by significant museums, collectors and institutions from all over Greece.

In the museum there are special exhibits such as Anna’s wedding dress and woven fabrics, hand-made clothes that Eva weaved for herself and for the Delphic Festivals, her passport, her braid of deep red hair, rare editions and manuscripts, correspondence between Angelos and Eva, photographic material, films and recorded recitations in the voice of the poet himself.
