Secrets 

  • The area of the museum was the home of the legend of sculpture, Giannoulis Chalepas.
  • Exploring the well-preserved house-museum a sense is created that Giannoulis has just left from his house though it’s been more than 70 years since he "left".
  • His clothes hanging on the hook, his personal belongings, his bedroom, his workshop, they all carry memories of the period (1902-1930) when the famous Greek sculptor lived in Pyrgos. His mind was frequently leading him into dangerous territories; Yet, without ever managing to limit his creativity.
  • Some of the major projects of Chalepas, sketches and photographs complement the precious material of the museum
