This small and very cheap museum on first sight appears to be something to breeze through UNLESS you are interested in Ancient History, and then it is full of fascinatiing stuff. OK, nothing huge and impressive except the Roman tiled floor on the terrace, but...More

I do appreciate the effort that goes into reconstructing all the broken pots, but it has very little information to read up more. The staffs are helpful in trying to explain things but they are there to stop you from breaking things, not explaining the...More

Very small museum, entry fee was 2 Euro for an adult. The artifacts inside really blew my mind. The good condition of some of the figurines, despite being nearly 3,000 years old (something else I could not get my head around) was surprising and a...More

A good museum to visit with plenty Art stock to see and Admire. Worth visiting. There are a lot of icons and findings they were discovered and are displayed.

Its a small museum filled with pottery, sculpture and glass objects from antiquity. Pretty mosaic on the roof.

I found this delightfully old fashioned and interesting. Full of local finds. Everything is displayed in traditional cabinets, and looks like it needs a bit of love, but the setting is lovely and the people there helpful

The museum is housed in a very interesting 16th century Jesuit school, where Nikos Kazantzakis was a boarder for some time. Ask the employees to explain where everything was (they are very helpful and knowledgeable). The artefacts are not always well-explained, but there are some...More
