Chania Archaeological Museum, Chania Reviews

  • Artifacts are contained in glass cabinets with good descriptions, dates, and locations where they were found. Spent several hour wondering around. The museum building itself is beautiful if a little hot during midday but a small price to pay. And €4 entry fee was well worth it. Helpful and friendly staff.

  • We spend 1 and a half hour and this was one of the best museums of the island. There are so many things to see that you do not know where to look. You are not allowed to make pictures of unpublished artifacts but you are allowed to make pictures of the ones that are published. Everything is documented in Greek and English. 4 Euro entrance per person is cheap. Knossos palace entrance is 16 euro since last year/year and a half.

  • Pretty cool museum. Worth the price and cool to see old artifacts but I wish there were more descriptions and history available for all the different artifacts. You can see it all in under an hour if you try.

  • One of the best and interesting museum I ever visited. Superb collection, great pieces disposition, clear informations. Definitively a MUST to visit if you are in the city...

  • Interesting exposition with rational and chronological descriptions. The location itself is attractive. Pay attention: it could be hot and only a small part is with a/c.
