Found this little Cretan Folk Museum by accident whilst taking a trip on the "Happy Train" from our hotel out to to Malia. Went back on foot to visit it the next day and very glad we did too! A lovely small museum which appears to be family run and very friendly. Lots to see and learn about traditional Cretan life, cooking and culture. We used the audio tour which was only 1 euro each to hire and well worth the extra money. They have a lovely small cafe on site selling very good value large beers at 3 euros each and delicious non-alcoholic almond and cinnamon drinks for the children, as well as the usual fizzy drinks and food. The museum backs directly onto the beach as well and they have a small shop selling local produce, drinks, herbs, olive oil, local soaps and essential oils - I bought a small bottle of Jasmine essential oil it is heavenly! If you plan to visit please note that museums in the area seem to close early in the afternoon around 2p.m so go early to give yourselves plenty of time.
