Description

One of the top attractions in the city of Chania is its Archaeological Museum. Located on Halidon Street in Chania’s Old Town, the Archaeological Museum is housed in a former Venetian Monastery. Following the Turkish invasion of Chania the monastery was converted into the Yusuf Pasha Mosque, after which it was used for other purposes. Today, the Archaeological Museum of Chania features a variety of fascinating exhibits divided into two sections; the late Neolithic era and the Minoan era, and the Iron Age. Visitors will come across collections of jewelry, mosaics, vases, metalwork, pottery, sculptures, inscribed tablets and so much more. While the museum is well known amongst archaeologists, it is also worth visiting for those not in the archaeology field as it offers them a glimpse into Cretan history.
