This was an unexpected gem. The finds from Akrotiri are well-displayed with comprehensive notes. I'd recommend visiting the site itself first. I suspect that there is lot more to come. Moreover we were charged half price entrance (3 Euros) as over 65 EU citizens. Get...More
Most of the exhibits in this airy museum date from about 1700 BC - and so it is amazing that they exist at all ! They will make more sense if you have visited the archaeological site first - about a 20 minute bus ride...More
Definitely worth a visit, especially if you've been to Akrotiri archaeological site. (It has many item found there.) Some fascinating things to see, well displayed. But very small, €6 each to get in, no toilets, no other facilities.
We came here directly after visiting the ruins, so it was a perfect follow up to put in place the artifacts with their location amongst the archeological site. Lovely small museum with many beautiful pieces on display.
Really enjoyed this museum. Would recommend coming after a visit to Akrotiri as it helps with the context of all the items. It's not a huge museum but the artefacts they have are very interesting. Plus EU students get free in!
We loved visiting this museum and were in awe of the beautiful artefacts exhibited.
Explanations were in English as as well as Greek which were very helpful.
It is a small museum but this meant there was more time to take it all in.
Yes, there is "backyard outdoor parking" within walking distance.
I'm not allowed to post URLs here, but go to google maps, choose Earth/satellite view, and you can immediately spot the parking areas with the many cars.
