“One of the most important museums in Europe. Here you can see the evidence of the Minoan civilisation like jewellery, pottery and frescoes. All the collections are original. The most significant exhibits are the golden bees jewellery, the Faistos disc, the godness of snakes and the lily Prince frescoe. The most ancient exhibits date back to 7000 BC and the historical presentation is completed with the Roman exhibits dated around 100AD. Check out the Facebook page and the website to be informed about the events! ”

“Historical Museum of Crete, on Sofokli Venizelou, facing the sea, is dedicated to bringing 2,000 years of history to life. The museum was founded in 1952 in a handsome turn of the 20th Century townhouse. It houses important examples of early Christian artifacts, stonework and decorative objects of Roman, Arab, Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish origin. There is a panoramic wooden model of mediaeval Heraklion, or Candia as it was called by the Venetians (after its Arabic name El Khandak) in one room, beautifully detailed, with push-button spotlights picking out the locations of many important sites of worship, defense and government. Some of these buildings are still standing, some are still in use, and the Venetian roads continue to give Heraklion its shape. The museum offers a genuine learning experience to visitors. You will read about and see evidence of the siege of the city that lasted 21 years (1648-1669) and ended with its capture by Ottoman Turks and the start of a desperate epoch. Almost constant insurrection and strife for 250 years followed until final unification with Greece. More recent exhibits are concerned with the 20th Century, and the 1913 unification is dealt with, under the leadership of Eleftherios Venizelos. Other rooms offer evidence of the island''s most recent warfare and the 10-day Battle of Crete in 1941 is powerfully evoked. Another room, a reconstructed library, dedicated to Crete''s most famous writer, Nikos Kazantzakis, who captured for a moment the soul of Crete. The restaurants outside the museum offer shade and fine foods.”

“The museum presents the natural environment of East Mediterranean and especially of Crete. A lot of exhibits are interactive and there are many activities for children and families. Some of the museum's highlights are the "living museum" the collections with alive animals like iguanas and the impressive and educational earthquake simulator. Nice educational gifts can be found at the museum shop! ”

“The fortress of Koule was built around 1500. Initally it was used as a fortress in order to identify and deter the pirates and later as a prison. It was part of a larger complex of buildings, the remainings can be seen opposite the fortress. It is a remarkable historical building because it is one of the last remaining fortressses built into the sea in Europe. Here you can see cannons and shipwrick findings. You will find the locals walking down the jetty throughout the year. ”
