The Archaeological Museum of Kissamos belongs administratively to the Ephorate of Antiquities of Chania. It is housed in the old Venetian-Turkish Administration Building within the castle of Kastelli Kissamos.
The museum’s exhibition is located on the ground and first floors of the building and provides a timeless picture of the history of the broader 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.
Thematic units and excavation sets present the finds chronologically.
There is illustrative material to support the exhibition. An electronic presentation is available with research and documentation on the most devastating earthquake of antiquity, the 365 AD earthquake that struck Crete and levelled Kissamos.
