The Lyceum of Greek Women is a remarkable female cultural society with many years of contribution to the cultural life of the country, trying to preserve the treasures of our folk heritage with respect and awareness and solidify the links with our national tradition.

Thus, until 2001, the members of the administration of L.E.N. collect and preserve a large part of our cultural heritage. The visitor rate of the small Folklore Museum at the entrance of the town of Naoussa has been particularly high, while its maintenance was always under the care of the board members and the help of the Municipality of Naoussa.
