The Folklore Museum of Stavroupolis, Xanthi, was founded in 1994 following a private initiative by Stavros Karabatzakis, who for years collected in the village's traditional coffee house various objects, samples of a different era and everyday life, which fell into disuse due to the rapid development of industry and of technology. A typical example is the section of the collection dealing with the evolution of lighting: acetylene, storm, oil lamps, lanterns and lanterns, etc. There are also weapons, agricultural implements, household utensils, clay and copper vessels, animal bells, textiles, photographs depicting vintage snapshots, documents and musical instruments such as gramophones. The collection is a 50-year-old work and has been housed since 2001, on the 1st floor of the municipal building of the former Tobacco Authority. On the ground floor, the exhibits come from donations and concern traditional clothing from different regions of Greece. In addition there is a composition of a Thracian room with its characteristic furniture: sideboard, boro with mirror, dining table.
