Permanent Exhibition

The permanent exhibition covers all three floors of the residences:

  • Everyday implements from different social, religious and economic groups. Most of them are registered and well preserved in order to inform visitors, researchers, historians etc.
  • Books and documents of Kougioumtzoglou family and the city’s other families and individuals.
    Photographs and cards which reflect the city and era’s identity.
  • A rich collection of costumes and embroideries, knitted and woven fabrics and traditional costumes of FEX’s dance workshop.
  • Jewelleries and precious objects that describe the late 19th century people and daily life.
  • Paintings and other modern and contemporary art objects, artists’ donations who wanted to support the work of FEX.

More specifically, in the basement, where the house’s cellar was located, have been on one side placed objects of the rural life related to agriculture and domestic work. In the other half, the exhibition presents Xanthi’s businessmen in the late 19th and early 20th century in almost complete shops and some professions workshops.

On the ground floor, except for the administration and adverting office and the workshops’ rooms, is dramatized the urban life of Xanthi in the 19th century. The Kougioumtzoglou family also belonged in this class. Besides, these rooms were the ones in which the family members were living: the kitchen, the dining room, the hallway, the living room, the office, the piano room.

Last but not least, the first was the only floor that there is no direct connection between the two houses. One of the residences is used for the operation of FEX’s Cultural Radio and some workshops. In the second one there is a bedroom, a children’s room, where rich school material is placed, the stamp room and Katina Veikou-Serameti’s office.

Coming out of the main building, in the back yard, two Turkish baths for both men and women are located, being kept in their original form until today.
