  • There is so much to discover - we loved the statues, coins, tombs etc. My daugther is five and enjoyed it for 90 minutes.

  • A lot of interesting information and objects from the Minoan Civilization, as well as the more recent history of Crete. Definitely a must see place in Kissamos.

  • If you are in Kissamos I recommend this museum, but I would not drive there especially for it. It takes around 45 minutes to see/read everything and the price is 4€ pp or 2€ for seniors. Beautiful sculptures and mosaics, but overall the musem is pretty small. There is also a floor and elevator to it. I think combined with other museums it might be a good day spent. It is pretty clean and also there is a toilet inside.
  • A hidden gem at the centre of Kissamos! Who would've thought that this old not very good looking or appealing building would be a portal to the history of Kissamos! Amazing excibits, restored artifacts and - among others - the biggest mosaic I've ever seen greatly preserved!! A must for any museum lover or not! Very polite staff eager to help and answer any questions. An electronic guide through headphones would've been very handy, explaining exhibits as we walk among them, especially since there is no employee to work as a guide....
