The Silk Museum in Soufli is housed in the Kourtidis Mansion (1883) and presents the stages of pre-industrial sericulture and silk manufacturing.

At the permanent exhibition of the Museum, visitors are informed about the multifaceted role of silk as a timeless feature of material culture, and they learn how Soufli became a significant silk production centre from the late 19th century until the mid-20th century.  Visitors discover the processes of sericulture following all the stages, from the production and incubation of the silkworm's eggs to the dyeing and weaving of silk textiles. Finally, visitors also have the chance to admire traditional local costumes of Soufli and impressive costumes of the Chinese Opera, part of a collection that was donated to the Foundation by the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in May 2018
