Thoroughly interesting and impressive. The grounds are impeccably maintained and the various facilities are excellent. Thoroughly recommended - particularly (but not exclusively) for those who are interested in modern Hellenic history.

This is the place to have a first and brief description of the life of Eleftherios Venizelos. The family building (not where he was born - Mournies) is excellently renovated and furnished with original items. Also, the original car of the Athens assassination attempt is...More

Probably a bit too far out of town to walk to but on several bus routes. Very interesting historically and of great importance to Cretans. We enjoyed our visit.

Usually museums are overwhelming, but this was just such a perfect, just right experience. You need approximately 2 1/2 hours which are pleasantly spent touring this amazing house along with all the time pieces that go with it. I would highly recommend this to anyone...More
