A small museum in the central square, with some impressive mosaics. Shows that Kissamos has been a vibrant community and commercial center since ancient times.

A visit of 2 adults and 2 teenagers - you don’t have to be totally interested in the local Hellenistic period to enjoy this museum. It takes approximately an hour to see everything - small but fascinating especially if you go before/aft to Falassarna or...More

Short but sweet, a fascinating place to visit even with older children. Even more so if you have been to see the ruins at Phalasarna. Great place.

Not bad, not great, a museum full of amphoras and such. A good thing to do if you want to get away from the bright sun or on a rainy day. There is a lovely café just across the square with seats under the trees.

This little local museum is located on the main square and is well worth a look in. The town has quite a history which I had no idea about, so I was interested to find out more. Helpful staff too.
