The Riechia Folklore Museum was established in 1985 thanks to the efforts of local resident Giorgos C. Belesis.

Exhibits focus on the culture and history of the surrounding Zarakas region and include agricultural tools, handcrafts, costumes, photographs of social life in times gone by and from the lives of emigrants, along with publications from the period between the two World Wars.

The museum now belongs to the Municipality of Monemvasia and is housed in a two-storey stone building that is a typical example of the architecture of Zarakas.
