The Silversmithing Museum is housed in the western rampart of the southeastern acropolis (Its Kale) in the Castle of Ioannina. The two levels of the rampart and the old kitchens of the castle were restored in order to house the permanent exhibition, which presents the technology of silversmithing during the pre-industrial era, with an emphasis on the area of Epirus.  

The first level is where the history and technology of silversmithing in Epirus is presented. Through the tools, the various techniques and with the help of photographs, audiovisual productions and multimedia applications, visitors discover the traditional techniques of shaping and decorating silverware. The second level is where the collection Epirote silverware from the 18th to the 20th centuries is presented. Works of art with intricate details, such as jewellery, weaponry, household silverware and personal items are some of the objects exhibited in this collection.
