Archaeological Museum of Chania Reviews
Small. Nice collection. Limited signage. No photos. Worth a half hour to walk through. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below. more »
Καταπληκτικό κτίριο. Πολύ καλές και σπάνιες συλλογές. Must visit για τους λάτρες της προϊστορικής Κρήτης. Δυστυχώς, δεν υπάρχει οδηγός του Μουσείου στο πωλητήριο. Τέλος, φανταστική η συλλογή Μητσοτάκη more »Amazing building. Very good and rare collections. Must visit for the lovers of prehistoric Crete. Unfortunately, there is no museum guide at the shop. Finally, fantastic the collection Mitsotaki
Great accessible museum. Lots of artifacts, labelled in Greek and English. Building has a high arched ceiling. Helpful staff. Wheelchair friendly.
Brings us closer to civilisation as it once was so we can compare ours to that of the past. Humans are humans. Needs and wants and dreams don't change much. Object of Art and crafts tell us much of the likeness we have as opposed to our differences as people of other times.
