  • Great collection of historical items. Museum is cozy and staffs are friendly. All the labels are in Greek and English. I loved the examples of jewelry that had been found here. Entrance is 2€

  • Very interesting place, well presented. Definitely worth visiting.

  • so much to see. one of the better museums I had the pleasure of visiting while on my trip.

  • Nice little museum! Definitely a place to go if you're interested in local history! A bit tight of them to charge you to get in, especially for the small size of the place, but it's not too expensive, oh and the staff who let you in are miserable as an old toilet.

  • A lot of very old objects and interesting (and unpublished!) things from the Krete history. There is also an extensive collections of coins and 'cheques' used throughout the history of the island. Do not forget to visit the garden, if opened, you can check out the Turkish fountain there. Interesting fact: The law protects people who find historical items beneath their properties from archeologists seizing hem for research, and so people instead of destroying discovered items can donate them to the museum without any repercussions. That is why you see so many descriptions 'donated by XXX'.
