    Wonderful museum!
    This museum is in a beautiful refurbished building. The exhibits are interesting and very well built. It was so impressive to learn about the history and craft. The collection is upstairs and features some exquisite pieces. We left with a deeper appreciation for this important industry.

    Beautiful museum with lovely exhibits
    My family and I visited this museum from 4pm to 6pm on a Friday afternoon. It cost 10 euros for us all four of us to enter. The museum is organised on two floors and it beautifully lit. The ground floor uses exhibits and videos to explain how silver is worked. The first floor contains a number of stunning examples of silver work and some educational games. We really enjoyed our visit. Highly recommended

    Great museum showing the techniques developed for silversmithing.
    A beautifully laid out museum of the techniques used to refine and work silver with a focus on the regional creations. Set over two levels in an historical part of the castle complex it is a great place. It can be difficult to see displays as there really is only room for single file progress around the displays. Really informative and some beautiful works in the second floor.

Pretty lackluster museum. Displays not exciting some although in cabinets needed dusting and polishing. Just poor.

I visited this museum several years ago. It's still very good. A little bit difficult to find, but worth it. It's built into the walls of the Castle. Ioannina is known for its silverwork. This craft is beautifully placed into its historic context. Several hands-on displays are included

This is not a museum , it’s an experience about the history of the town and the silver. A great work of all the people who participate in this project. Thank you!!!

Compact museum with specific focus and thoughtfully laid-out exhibits, Our favorite parts were those focusing on the process of refining and working with silver. Other parts of the museum are dedicated to showcasing silver objects and tracing the history of the silver trade.

We are a family of 5 (2 adults + 3 kids) and we all found something to interest us here.

All explanations are in Greek and English.

- and as the name says, it is about the industry, not the objects themselves, which I found museum-pedagogically disappointing: I want to see the objects first and then get an explanation how they were made and for whom. Were mostly, because the industry seriously declined, and revivals didn't fully work. But there is production in town today and one would expect the best examples of local silversmithing for sale in the shop - not so, however. The museum is a very au courant example of top-line European museum design, lots of explanations, dim light, ambiance - it took well over a decade to develop as part of the citadel, and in the end, I would call it a success.

The entance was free with the ticket for the byzantyne museum (i100 m) . Very glad we got time to visit (about 0,5 hour). The region has been famous for its silver and they have a very nice and varied collection. Also good explanations about the different methods used to make the silver objects.
