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

The archaeological museum at Agios Nikolaos is currently closed for refurbishment works. Understand not likely to reopen before end of 2014?
