What a relieve to hear that the damage at this museum is minimal after the 6.6 magnitude earthquake that hit the island earlier this month. The building itself did not sustain any damage, although it was built in 1936.
The inventory inside the museum revealed that out of the 43 sculptures exhibited on pedestals, only three headless statues and one bust came down, suffering minor chips and mainly to those parts that had been restored with plaster earlier.
Renovation works that were initiated last year, do luckily include earthquake provisions in order to be better prepared in the future.
Meanwhile the museum has reopened to the public, a major attraction for tourists to Cos.
