  • A nice little museum that has some excellent model ships and other nautical memorabilia. The thing that we liked best was the magnificent exhibition of all things pertaining to the Battle of Crete...

  • Spent a morning at the museum and wow. So much history, and artifacts. There is even a sea life “shell” room. The building itself is awesome as you are up on the battlements overlooking Chania...

  • Great museum with tons of info from lots of periods in history. Little hard to navigate but well worth the visit
  • Very good section on the Battle of Crete in the 2nd World War, overall well worth the 3 Euros
