Archeological Museum of Chania, Crete Overview

Since 1963 the Archeological Museum of Chania has been housed, temporarily, in the Venetian church of St Francis which once belonged to the Franciscan monks, an important monument of the city. The displays contain items starting from Neolithic times, continuing with various Minoan objects, ending with the Byzantine period.

The museum provides important information about daily lifestyles of Cretan History, their rituals, and traditions. The display contains carved stones, pottery objects, gold jewellery, coins, metalworks, and sculptures. There also exists mosaic floors from Roman times. Opposite the Museum, you can hardly miss noticing the only remains of a Turkish Hamam.
