This museum houses an important collection of local finds spanning neolithic to Roman times, with emphasis on the Minoan civilisation. One of the most significant exhibits is the Palekastro Kouros – a figure pieced together from elements of hippopotamus tusks and gold. Finds from Zakros Palace include a winepress, bronze saw, jars, cult objects and pots that are clearly scorched from the great fire that destroyed the palace. English and Greek labelling.
