Archaeological Museum in Kos, Greece
Kos Museums - The Archaeological Museum in Kos, Greece is housed in an impeccably preserved neoclassical building designed in 1935 during the Italian rule over Kos and the Dodecanese islands. Located in Eleftherias Square, the museum's architecture is striking and it displays numerous findings unearthed during excavations on Kos, Rhodes, and neighbouring Dodecanese islands from the late 20th and early 21st centuries. These archaeological discoveries span a significant period from ancient to post-Roman and Hellenistic times. The museum boasts remarkable exhibits including exquisite mosaics, ancient statues from Asklepeion, a vast collection of prehistoric pottery and metal objects, artefacts from a 3rd-century B.C. tomb of a young athlete, coins, anaglyphs, and a host of other items. The museum frequently arranges educational programmes for students and groups to familiarize them with the island's rich history.
