Housed in Topalis mansion built in 1844, Museum of Folk Art and History of Pelion in Makrinitsa stands out for its architecture which is characteristic of Pelion as it was established at the end of the fist half of the 20th century. In 1985 it was characterised as a historic listed monument by the Ministry of Culture.

The mansion was passed down to the Topalis family in 1932 in the Makrinitsa district (as it was then) in order to house said museum. The collection found in the museum includes more than 1500 exhibits.

The large collection of old photographs, the murals that decorated the mansion dating back to the 18th and 19th century, various wooden, bronze and ceramic household utensils, the tsipouro distillation equipment, historical relics, small objects of ecclesiastical art, local traditional costumes, etc. are among the exhibits that are particularly interesting.
