We went to Crete specifically to study the Minoan Civilization, and all of the tour/guide books indicate unequivocally that this Museum is the place to see everything that we wanted to see,
However, there was one room with in which parts of frescos reproduced and you could see what they might have looked like when they were whole, and another small room with some bits and bobs , but nowhere the wonderful collection and displays, which we had expected to be the highlight of our trip to Crete.
Simple, they have been doing a "Renovation" of this museum since 2006 !!!!
No problems for them I guess, they get the same admission price...
WHAT A HUGE DISSAPPOINTMENT !
Obviously they don't let it be known that all of the treasures you're looking forward to seeing,
are put away for the " renovation"
