  • While the exhibits are interesting and very good presentation, this lady refused to give us discounts, while the attendant professional identities shown excursions! But then why to bring groups of ...??? It is possible to want to start cooperation after correctly? There's a whole philosophy behind this mindset, you are totally wrong! Profits should come from happy tourists, rather than partners who are asking for help to learn how to do their job properly! Earned an entire tick, and (as far as I am concerned ...) lost a few hundred more!!!

  • a lovely little museum in Chania Old Harbour, nicely kept and loved with small but interesting displays of ancient and more recent naval things and artifacts  more »
  • Very interesting Museum. Exhibits on the sea in great variety. Includes objects and exhibits both merchant and Navy but not only, as with pleasant surprise I found when I visited. Contains impressive finds from ancient and more recent wrecks, even rich collection of shells. Embossing the maritime history of Crete and of the country. Of interest for all ages and is offered for educational visits. Each visitor of the city worth a visit!
