Kimolos played an important role throughout the prehistoric period and even to this day remains from that time can still be found. Many of these findings and remains are now kept in the Archaeological Museum of Kimolos, in Chorio village, right opposite the Metropolis church of Panagia Odigitria. The museum is housed in a traditional two-storey building, one of the oldest in the village filled with ancient remains like vessels and statuettes from the ancient site of Ellinika.
In a beautiful mansion inside the medieval castle is housed the Folklore-Maritime Museum of Kimolos. Its collections range from rural items to pottery and relics as an aim to preserve the old tradition itself through an interesting journey in the old-fashioned life of the island. Both museums are worth a visit.
