MUSEUM OF MARBLE CRAFTS
Enjoy 10% discount on your purchases at the MUSEUMSHOP of the Museum of Marble Crafts in Tinos!
The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation has created and operates a Network of nine thematic Museums in the Greek provinces.
The Museum of Marble Crafts in the village of Pyrgos on Tinos island presents in a detailed manner the intricate meshing of tools and techniques used in working marble, with an emphasis on the pre- and proto-industrial Tinos. In parallel, it highlights the social and economic framework in which the local workshops developed.
In the permanent exhibition of the Museum visitors can observe original creations made of marble (secular or ecclesiastical, funerary or everyday objects), clay models, plaster copies, tools and mechanical equipment. Visitors can also admire the rich collection of drawings by marble-carvers of yore, as well as the archival materials. Finally, the impressive reconstructions of a quarry and a workshop, presented through audiovisual material, bring back to life the traditional working methods of a quarryman and a marble-carver.
