Never got to go, really wanted to! If I ever get back to Kos, I'd love to visit at some point, I've heard some great things concerning Kos' historic folklore!

The atmosphere was so good in the cottage it felt peaceful and it was so interesting to see how people lived and worked. The sleeping area looked so comfortable and the family photographs are such a nice touch a wonderful museum.

Here you can find how the ancient Greeks used to dress, what utensils they used etc. It is an interesting thing to do with children especially when you're trying to keep them away from the hot sun.

it is a great effort by a non profit organisation, on the seafront, admission fee is cheap & is worth a visit, in order to see some of "old ways" of Kardamena !

Not bad, but I thought it was a bit boring and I found the lack of being able to buy water on side a bit dissapointing. Plus I did not think there were too many things that were that historically significant.

Thank 56Thomas_H
