This is a very detailed museum and well worth the visit. It is Air conditioned too so that helps. I would suggest going to the museum before you go to Knossos as this way you can imagine what it was like easier. We had a guide which meant that moving through the rooms was easier, there was the usual boards... More

It wasn't easy to find out that this was closed - tours still point it out, but it is currently CLOSED for refurbishment of some sort. I checked with the Information in Agios Nikolaos port - just as well as it is a fair walk and would hav been disappointed if we had done it only to found it was... More

Small and nice with an interesting range of items related to the local history, the island culture and antiquities related to those. You will need no more than an hour (if you are slow) to go through most of the items, yet - it's worth the time spend.

Quite small inside, lots of ancient handworked clothing such as embroidery, farm implements and information about local history. Worth a visit if you are in town, situated near the tourist information centre.. Lasted about twenty minutes. Cost two or three euro to get in I think. Local costumes on display models were quite good.

The Archaeological Museum of Agios Nikolaos, is a brilliant museum, full of wonderful artifacts that have been found throughout the Lasithi area. The museum is closed for renavations at the moment and will not be open again until summer 2016.

For the history buffs, this place is a must see. Not as large as the museum in Heraklio but still full of interesting artifacts.

We arrived by taxi during listed opening hours to find it closed - taxi driver made a call and said it was not just 'closed today' but - closed. Odd in view of the apparent visit mentioned below, 2 weeks ago - suggest you call local tourist information before setting off to visit! Pity, as it sounded good...

the whole area was overgrown and the sign with reference numbers to the lot had nothing to refer to.

We happened by this amazing museum after a planned visit to Knossos was cut short by torrential rain, thunder and a threat of lightening, and so our taxi driver suggested a visit to the museum. We were so delighted to have gone, an absolutely fascinating collection, well laid out with good descriptions and each room a treasure in itself. Don't... More

Holds so much good History of all the very famous stuff! No flash photography is allowed though. We had it guided as part of a first choice trip and the woman knew loads and was very good.
