Fairly compact museum with well displayed finds from prehistoric through to classical antiquity. Some really important items such as the unique Mycenian armour.

It was worth seeing and some of the findings were quite recent. It is quite small but the detail was very good nothing like you would see now

Fascinating exhibits from the local area dating from Neolithic times. Two unique exhibits you will not see elsewhere: large terracotta wine cooler; Mycenaean suit of armour with boars' tusks helmet. Stairway lift for those with mobility problems. Entrance fee €3 for EU seniors over 65.

A small but interesting museum in the old Venetian arsenal. Be sure not to miss the nearly complete suit of Mycenaean bronze armor.

This is an interesting visit. The history on display here is amazing and it is worth the time to visit. It doesn't take long, or, if desired, you could spend a couple of hours.
