The Archaeological museum of Kos is found in Eleftherias Square
in the heart of Kos Town
The museum is relatively small but is still home to some of the best artefacts that were discovered from the various archaeological sites around the island, particularly the Roman Odeon
and Casa Romana
It’s laid out over two floors with the ground floor hosting the larger items like statues and mosaic floor pieces. The first floor has smaller items like pottery, weapons, tools and other every day items.
Throughout the museum are plaques with loads of information on what the pieces are, where they were found and what they might have been used for. This makes for a very interesting and educational wander round the building and is well worth the 6€ entrance fee.
You should aim to have at least 30 minutes to see the entire collection but probably more like an hour if you plan on reading all the plaques and not rushing round and even longer if you like to take your time.
The opening hours throughout the summer months are usually 8.00am to 8.00pm but it generally has one day a week when it’s not open so check when you arrive so you don’t turn up on that day.
