We actually found it only because we stay in the area that is true. We really enjoyed visit because of building itself, interesting artifacts and historical value of everything one can see inside. We actually know Crete and Cretan people way better after this visit...More

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.

We had watched the renovations going on for years but at last Venizelos' house is at last open to the public. The restoration is immaculate with meticulous attention paid to the furniture and artifacts. The museum is arranged by theme rather than chronologically, but the...More
