“Only some parts open”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

But absolutely worth a visit together with a visit to Knossos. Both places are very popular, so it is better to go early in the morning. The cost of the visit is surprisingly low.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We wanted to go to both Agios Nikolias and Heraklion museums, the first one was being rebuilt and the second one was being refurbished with just two rooms open. A total waste of time.

“SPLENDID COLLECTION”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I love the whole setting of the museum,starting with the oldest finds and slowly getting "newer".Its labeled in english and each piece is explained what it was used for.Its not expensive and has a good selection of postcards.The bad news is that it has closed for modenisation and I'm not sure when it will re-open.

“Closed for refurbishment.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The Archeological Museum at Ayios Nikolaos is currently closed due to major rebuilding work.

We made the walk uphill from the town-centre to find a large building site across the road from the town's hospital only to discover that the museum is currently closed. There was no information to indicate when it will reopen.
