The silversmithing museum opened in Ioannina Castle to showcase the city’s extensive history and skill in the silver industry. The idea for the project began in 2008, with the implementation of studies on restoring the space.
Supported by the local community and with attention given to preserving the original masonry of the space, the museum is the ninth craft museum sponsored by the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation. The space for the permanent exhibition was provided by the Ministry of Culture.
