  • We enjoyed our visit to this maritime museum, small but very interesting re the naval history. Wish they had a poster of the development of boats (as displayed). Nice, unusual items in the gift shop. ...  read more »
  • Even if you are only vaguely interested, there is a wealth of information, artifacts, and models - too much to describe. Time well spent out of the sun. 
  • A very extensive array of model ships, lots of information about early Chania great models of wht it used to look like also a good exhibition of ww2 memorabilia 
  • Compact museum but well worth the visit. Beautiful exhibits and not too expensive either. Very interesting place.
  • Heaven on Earth!
