The costume exhibit follows the typology firstly introduced by the prominent scholar of Greek costume, Aggeliki Hatzimihali. According to this typology, costumes are classified into three categories; costumes with Segouni, costumes with Kavadi and costumes with the frock dress.
On the ground floor, visitors can find regional costumes including the Segouni, the overcoat worn by the rural and livestock-breeding population of Greek mainland.
On the first floor, the world of the nomadic and semi-nomadic population fuses with the societies of traders and craftsmen with costumes including the Kavadi and the Anteri.
On the second floor, the Tsoukna frock, a variation of the Byzantine dalmatic frock, encounters its Renaissance-style version of pleated dresses worn in the insular and coastal regions with commercial ties to the West.
