The Archaeological Museum of Kissamos belongs administratively to the Ephorate of Antiquities of Chania and is housed in the building of the old Venetian-Turkish Administration Building, within the castle of Kastelli Kissamos.
The Museum’s exhibition is located on the ground floor and the first floor of the building and provides a timeless picture of the history of the wider area of Kissamos from prehistoric times to late antiquity. Particular emphasis is placed on the Roman city of Kissamos, to which the floor is dedicated.
The finds are presented in chronological order by excavation sets and by thematic units. The exhibition is supported by illustrative material, and an electronic presentation is available with research and documentation on the most devastating earthquake of antiquity, the 365 AD earthquake that struck Crete and leveled Kissamos.
