It was fascinating to see how Crete was in the past and compare it to our similar museums in the UK.
We were fortunate that the attendant put on a film for us about the history of Crete and also the fascinating history of the museum which has been an incredible personal achievement for those involved.

The Natural History Museum (NHM) of Heraklion, with the Arcaeological and the Historical Museums are a must, while visiting Crete.
My son and I are used to the Natural History and Science Museums in London and this place has a good combination of some of the best aspects of both.

The gardens surrounding the museum and a lovely place to stroll and the views back to the Old Venetian Harbour from here a spectacular, especially at sunset.

But, the visit to Myrtia, in addition to the Museum, is an interesting visit to a marvellous site of agricultural land and to a peaceful Cretan village.
I found a most interesting and modern museum and information center, with a well-informed staff, good exhibitions and a video presentation of his life.

This is kind of two museums for the price of one as it is situated in the Venetian villa with a lot of original features.
If you have a husband, like mine, who is really into his military museums then the yellow train company have a tour.
