This is a private museum, a life's work of Valsamidis brothers, who were born and live in Kalymnos. Their love for the sea and the willingness to share its joys and wealth with other people, lead them build this museum with enormous personal effort and enthusiasm. The result of their work will impress you.

"KALYMNIKO SPITI" (Kalymnian house) is an individual effort to preserve and promote the Kalymnian traditional way of life in the last century !

The Maritime Museum of Kalymnos was founded in 1994. It presents the naval tradition, history and methods of the sponge catching, along with many artifacts from ancient shipwrecks. In its four rooms you will see objects related to the profession of sponge catching and sponge processing.

Built in Pothia, in the center of the island's capital, the new Archaeological Museum of Kalymnos was launched in 2009 and hosts ever since the "Lady of Kalymnos."
