Military Museum of Didymoteicho

The Military Museum of Didymoteicho was founded in 2000 and is housed in a traditional building, granted by the Municipality.

The original purpose of this building (built in 1907) was to help the locals professional tradings.

Therefore there was a cereal storage room, a small cheese factory and a silk production and processing facility on the second floor.

The entire interior is made of wood from Siberia and most of it survives to this day. There was a cafeteria in the yard for those who brought their products and were waiting for their turn to use the facilities.

In 1996 the Municipality bought this building in an attempt to convert it to a center of cultural significance.

The municipality worked hand in hand with military leadership to create this museum which depicts the history of Greece and especially the area of Thrace.

There are three floors with exhibits of weaponry and uniforms of different eras, medals, paintings, photos and other martial artifacts.

The museum is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 09:00 to 14:00, Wednesday 18:00 to 20:00 and Sunday 11:00 to 14:00.

There is a parking lot, WC and accessibility for people with mobility difficulties.
