Well worth a visit and staffed by friendly Volunteers

This lovely museum relies on your generosity to function by way of donations only - the authorities do not fund it.
The volunteers love to see visitors and want to keep and share their Greek heritage with you.
I am amazed at how much is on display and what enthusiasm and tenacity they have to keep the doors open ( even at odd times )
Hosts David or Yannis are welcoming and make you feel relaxed and at home.
Very very polite people.
Please support the museum as I have done over the years for future generations and visitors.
The volunteers are too proud to tell you any of this - so I have.
Thanks John.

It was nice to see photos and the history of the place, the way things were done and the way they looked . Very nice of the locals to keep their history like that.

Great little museum on the water front. The guide, David, was very friendly and certainly knew his history about Kos. The lifestyle , culture and the traditionsof Kardamena are on show in the museum.

I got married here in 2015. Such a little gem hidden away on the harbour. If we weren't getting married here I would never of known it was here.
Defiantly worth a visit, there is so much to see

A compact Little museum covering many aspects of life on the island.
Staffed by volunteers, David was very friendly and knowledgeable, it gives a brief insight into the past.

Interesting museum with fascinating photo albums. The volunteer curator was good to talk to. It is open 3 days a week and is found by the harbour.
