Chania Archaeological Museum, Chania Reviews - Write a Review
Small but perfectly formed. This museum has just enough exhibits so that you are not overwhelmed. My favourite objects were the teacups which are nearly identical to modern day styles and unbelievably fragile.
Very interesting museum. It worths visiting it. The building is very nice too
Just Great. Please dont allow students. Greek students, that is. Just send the to Louvre.
A really incredible museum in the heart of the city. Very well preserved pieces and informative plaques describing each piece in several languages. The architecture of the building itself is especially impressive, and the rose garden is not to be missed! Fair warning, there is no AC!
This is an interesting place set off well in an interesting building... well worth a visit.
