  • Interesting museum that takes the visitor to the lifestyle in Crete of 18th and 19th century. Tools, raw materials and products of cottage industry, everyday objects and representations of rural homes and occupations. Presentation and how to create traditional embroideries. Anyone who has interest in tradition will find enough to satisfy.

  • Not sure if it's worth a visit as it's very small. We only went here as it was a very wet day. If you have half an hour to spare then it's worth a quick look around.  more »
  • No tour no label that explains what you see .... It has little things to see ... highly recommended ....

  • If you have spare time in Hania, you can go through the whole house in less than 30 minutes. It would be better if there were more descriptions of how life was back then. In addition, the cigarette smoke in the house was annoying and interfered to our visit. It is important to keep the old style of living documented and this kind of places should continue to be functional. The women there work really hard to maintain the museum.
  • Very small. Nice lady at the entrance. Pay 2 euro per person.

Where to stay in Chania Town

Many package tourists on Crete stay in comfortable hotels outside Chania Town, though this lively seaport offers accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels to five-star resorts. If you too prefer to stay out of town, consider one of the surrounding area's well-appointed villas and apartments, which provide secure parking and access to private outdoor spaces. Stick to the city's harbor area for fine shopping and dining, or check out the old town's boutique hotels for good atmosphere, friendly service, and proximity to sandy beaches.
