The Kos Museum

The Kos Archaeological Museum is housed in a building in Eleftherias Square dating from 1935 and is a classic specimen of the Italian reconstruction that took place in Kos town after the 1933 earthquake. The antiquities are displayed on two levels although the first floor where the museum's large pottery collection is stored, is not yet open to the public. The statues displayed on the ground floor have been brought to light during excavations in the city of Kos: the Agora, the West archaeological sites, the Altar of Dionysos, the Roman Odeon, the Roman House... As you enter the museum you will not fail to notice the beautiful mosaic of the Hellenistic period that adorns the floor of the Atrium, representing the arrival of Asklepios in Kos (3rd century AD). In the North West room make sure that you get to  admire the imposing statue of a man, supposedly Hippokrates. You can also take the time to appreciate a number of other beautiful works dating from the Hellenistic up to the Roman era of which I give you a small sample.
