Archaeological Museum information
At the time of writing the museum was closed for an unspecified period for refurbishment and expansion. Visitors are advised to phone the museum for updated information. When open, the extensive and well-displayed collection has no major showpiece, but it is probably the second-most significant Minoan collection in existence, and includes clay coffins, ceramic musical instruments and gold from the island of Mohlos. The chronological exhibits have some brief information in English and begin with neolithic finds from Mt Traóstalos, north of Kato Zakros, and early Minoan finds from Agia Fotia, then finds from Malia and Mohlos. The highlight is the odd-looking Goddess of Myrtos, a clay jug from 2500 BC.
