Really enjoyed this museum and its coverage of Crete's rich history and of the local items on display. I particularly liked the section of Crete's favourite son, Nikos Kazantzakis, recreating his study and displaying some of his works, including art. The WWII section also should not be missed. You will appreciate learning about the sacrifices of the Cretan people during the occupation. During my visit the museum was not crowded and is serves as a nice place to relax. Outside in a courtyard were some Ottoman tomb stones and tables to sit and enjoy some refreshments from the small museum cafe. On the opposite side they had a patio facing the water with a nice view.
