There is since Python 2.2, see Lib/Lib-tk/tkFileDialog.py
You can look at the details at
There is nothing I know of for earlier versions, unfortunately. I
checked the python-list, but there are only unsuccessful requests.
Tk 8.3 has a directory chooser that you can invoke from Tkinter.
Running Python 1.5.2 with Tkinter (tk_version 8.3):
Python 1.5.2 (#1, Mar 3 2001, 01:35:43) [GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat

>>> from Tkinter import *
>>> root = Tk()
>>> root.tk.eval('set tk_version')
The Tcl module containing the tkChooseDirectory proc is choosedir.tcl in
the tk8.3 library directory.
The following code will work for you. I have no idea if it is avialable
prior to 2.2 of Py, but is definitely only available in Tk 8.3+
>from tkFileDialog import *
