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.
