Armenochori is a village along the Edessa-Florina National road at a distance of 3 kilometres from Florina. In 1990 the Armenochori Cultural Society started collecting objects from folk culture which led to the creation of the Folklore Collection. The collection is housed in the old primary school of Armenochori in the centre of the village.

On display in the three rooms of the building are objects from folk culture, which come exclusively from the families of Armenochori. To be precise, there are men’s and women’s traditional costumes, domestic utensils, various metal, earthenware or wooden objects used in the home, objects relating to cottage industry, the most notable among them being a nineteenth century loom, farming tools and tools of a number of other occupations, as well as the old pulpit from the village church.
