Museum of popular art

Crete, an island known for its long history and numerous achievements. These facts and the inventiveness of its habitants inspired us to create an exhibition space which shows the recent cretan history.

Tools and their history.

The museum shows objects used by the Cretan in their daily life, as scales, looms and oven-houses, as well as tools which made the hardship of daily work easier, as ploughs and stone mills.

Furthermore the visitor will find musical instruments which accompanied marriages, ceremonies, joy and sorrow of the people, as well as weapons with which the locals fight heroically against the conquerors, but also were fighted with, and other historical heirloom. We select all these heirloom of our history and try to enrich them constantly, so as you can visit them and remember passed times.

The museum opens for the public from 8 o’clock until 20 o’clock.

Entrance is free of charge.
