If your into history then this place is very very good indeed, you can literally go nose to nose with faces from thousands of years ago !
I was awestruck, my wife who hates history in all forms and would rather be in a bar sipping a cocktail also enjoyed it and that is probably the best compliment I can give !!

It is small but it’s very unusual for so much of a museum to be open and not behind glass !
Definitely worth an hour and a few euros!

I was actually pleasantly surprised when I visited Archeological Museum for first time. It is very small, and I thought not many interesting stuff is stored here, but I was obviously wrong. The museum featured a mosaic picturing god Asclepius coming on Kos, and a local and Hippocrates waiting to welcome him. Then museum features a few architectural pieces such as tombs stones and marble tables. But what took me by surprise was its quite good collection of statues, aged from as early as 5th century BC to late Hellenistic era (mostly from 4 c BC to 4 c AD though) .Some statues are well preserved, other not so much. Some are intacked, there are only some parts of others surviving. Soem are small, some are very large. It is a really interesting collection, you should like to see. Details on some of the most well-maintened statues are impressive. Take a close look on the winged sandals of Hermes statue for example, or the details on the women statues dresses and the like! Fabulous!

Limited range of exhibits over two floors.
Felt over-warm, the a/c seemingly unable to cope.
Only €6 entry, though, so not outrageous.

I was in Kos for 3 weeks during July and August and was disappointed to find this museum was not open to the public at this time due to renovations which I would have thought better carried out off peak season rather than a very busy visitor period.Come on Kos tourist board-could do better

To our great annoyance we found a paper on its door stating that it was closed till further notice. Just as we found the Casa Romana after a further long, hot walk

We wanted to visit but the local people told us it has been closed for refurbishment over two years ago and due to the economic crisis in Greece nothing has been done. It remain closed

This was a must while we were in Kos and although the museum itself was small the exhibits and information presented was excellent and provided good information on all the archeological sites we had seen previous to visiting while we were exploring Kos.

The entrance was only €6 and they do offer student discount with a valid card (So bring it! We never thought it would be valid in Greece so didn't bring ours which was a shame as many historical sites such as the roman villa offer it)

Highly recommend going as was a very insightful visit and was a good way to spend an hour or so in Kos town

Visited July 2011. Well worth the small entrance charge. Spent a pleasant couple of hours with our two girls (then 10 and 7) who found it all really fascinating. Lovely and cool too!

This museum has a lot of interesting historical artifacts and some lovely marble models of famous greek people in ancient history. It only cost 3 euro to get in so is a good value for money attraction and I would highly recommend it if you are interested in history or are a budding historian.
