The Heraklion Archaeological Museum is one of the most important museums recording the ancient Minoan culture, the Bronze Age civilization which existed on the island of Crete between 2700BCE and 1100BCE. You’ll also find exhibits showing the place of Crete in the wider world of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, and the museum garden houses the remains of the Venetian monastery of St Francis, which once stood on the site. Combine your visit with a trip to Knossos to get a full experience of Minoan Crete.
