Great little place that shares the island's WW2 history and more! Great views of the harbor and light house.

Even if you are not interested in the history, there are many great angles to take pictures of the harbor through the archways of the museum, or a great view of Chania, with mountain and ocean on the background. It is free and opens early and closes early.

A must visit if you want to get a flavour ot Crete past. The building itself is interesting . There is a very good WW2 bias

The Annexe to the Museum (at the other end of the marina to the main museum) is home to the replica Minoan Sailing Ship. For anyone interested in sailing, joinery or history this is a must.

Exhibitions of maritime history through the ages. Majority with English interpretation. Worth a visit.Lots of interesting exhibitions.The film about the war and the struggle of the islanders was particularly poignant.
