Stuffed with models and artefacts. Covers range of history from Byzantine to modern day. Brilliant model of Venetian Chania. Sections on WWII and battle for Crete are interesting.

A few interactive opportunities for kids make them feel like sailors or the captain on the commanding bridge - and loads of details for adults about cretan history. Liked it!

Nice place where you can see part of history. Starting with first Creta ships and ending on WW II. around 12 roms full of history. During my visit was not possible to see the fort, due too some construction work there.

It was a very nice stop and a cool break from the summer heat, and learn something about crete, especially during WWII, also has good view of harbor on the second floor, well worth the money.

Although, compared to other museums, a bit old fashioned the museum is a must see for people that want to dive into the nautical history of Crete. The first part of the museum deals with ancient history, while the rest explains about more modern warfare....More
