Archaeological Museum of Kalymnos
The museum is located in the center of the island's capital Pothia, at the district of Agia Triadha. It was launched in 2009 and since then hosts the “Lady of Kalymnos”, a unique bronze sculpture from the Hellenistic period. The sculpture depicts a woman draped in chiton and tasseled himation. It emerged unexpectedly from the Kalymnian sea in 1995, as it was caught into the nets of a local fisherman.
There are also antiquities from the Prehistoric and Post-Byzantine era. It is an unbelievable treasure that will help the visitor realize, that Kalymnos has its own historical weight and value over millennia. Simply put, is a must see attraction.
