Ομορφο και προσεγμενο μουσειο στα Χανια.Μαθαινεις αρκετα για την ισοτιρα διαφορων μαζων και θαυμαζεις τα μοντελα των πλοιων.Ειναι ενδιαφερον μουσειο και αξιζει να αδιερωσετε τον χρονο σας. more »Beautiful and thoughtful museum in Chania. You learn enough about the Isotira of various masses and admire the models of ships. It's interesting museum and it's worth it to give your time a try.
A nice museum with two floors of exhibits and clear care put into several parts. Most displays are helpfully provided in both English and Greek. The exhibit design could use some improvement in cohesion and telling an overall narrative, but it was nonetheless a good use of two hours for €3.
Very cheap and it offers a lot. Perfect place to find out more about the history of Crete in general, and more specifically about Chania. I really enjoyed it and it shouldn't be missed while in town!
