  • Not your typical ancient history experience! But the immersive experience meant we learnt a lot, and the staff really made a big effort. Fun trip to do with friends or family.

  • If you are seriously interested in the archaeology of Crete, skip this and take a trip to Knossos. If you get a good tour guide, you will learn a good deal more than sitting on this 'experience...

  • Super cool! We learned more history about the Greek history and had very much fun in the 9d cinema! Jump scares and thrills. Seeing the reconstruction of the Knossos Palace was a great addition to visiting the ruins.
  • Downtown Chania and the perfect respite from the heat for around 45 minutes of 9D excitement with a small bit of history thrown into the mix. The stafff at this location are extremely hospitable and it is fun for both big and small kids.
  • We loved it! It's a quirky little place. Lovely staff showed us how to take the best 3D photos in the first room(which also gave an introduction to the Minoan culture). The cinema experience was fab. Information given in such an exciting way. I don't want to give details away as there are surprises! The last part in the cinema is not cultural...just pure fun. We were a mixed generation group from 8 to oldies, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and came out laughing and smiling (and feeling liked we had learned things). It was also a wonderful oasis of air-conditioning that gave relief from the summer heat.
  • Friendly family run business, easy to find in the centre of Chania. Opportunity to take photos of a 3D nature in the museum part. Fun 9D cinema experience, we both enjoyed it and also learnt about the Greek gods and the Minoan way of life. Extra film on a roller coaster which was great. Definitely recommend a trip here, if you want a break from the beach and heat.
  • The Minoan World experience is worth a visit especially for the price (about 15 euro per adult). It's about a 5 minute walk from the city center bus stop where cruise ships drop off passengers. The duration is about 1 hr and includes a mix of a brief explanation on the history, photo ops of the props, and finally a theater experience that incorporates movement, sound, water, and lighting effects. Three movies are shown including a brief history lesson from a local professor, followed by an animated journey of the rise and fall of the Minoans, and finally a canyon roller coaster. The last one, although fun, is a bit random. Note the animated experience may be a bit overwhelming for toddler age children given all of the effects and stimulus. Overall, it's worth a visit if you are in the area, but I would not actively seek this out if you have a limited time window. If cruising go on an excursion instead.
