“Not my thing, but great for those with specialist interests”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

At just 2 euros for entry, this is definitely worth seeing (and a great place to escape the midday heat if you don't fancy napping!)
I learned a lot about Crete's history, which was more interesting than I realised. The collection of maritime memorabilia will appeal to those who love the sea, and lovers of history can see scale models re-enacting famous battles and read about the details in broken but perfectly understandable English.

“Should be called Model Museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

If you like model war ships go. If not give it a pass. It's not expensive but more a waste of time in such a beautiful city with so much to offer.

“maritime museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

If you get chance while in chania,visit this place,so full of history and you could spend half a day in here easy.
Normanally my wife would go shopping while I would go round these sort of places on holiday,but she decided to come in with me and she really enjoyed it,and at 3 euros each a bargain.
So much history and a whole section devoted to the second world war relating to crete and there involvement in that war,complete with videos on that and other maritime related history.
Simply a must visit in chania.

“Interesting Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

My husband wanted to go to this museum and when we first walked in I was a little skeptical. As we walked through, they had so many artifacts to look at. It was nice to see history through a different lens after visiting quite a few archeological sites on our trip.
