  • The Archaeological Museum in Sitia is small, only one floor in a small building, but it is also interesting and in that it is small so it will not be so overwhelmingly intrusive. The museum contains bargains from the area, not least from the ancient city of Itanos whose ruins can be reached after a car ride. The museum showcases some interesting pottery coffins, one with skeletons, ceramic tubs and amphoras. In addition, there are some minor things. The entrance price was at our visit two euros which seemed like a low price. Since it does not take so long to look at what is available, it is actually worth dedicating an hour for a visit.

  • An astonishing collection of local archaeological finds, some so old it is difficult to comprehend! Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Small but very interesting little museum with lots of artifacts accompanied with adequate explanation in English and Greek makes for a wonderful little history lesson of the ancient Crete and it's inhabitants. Only 2 Euro entrance.
  • Easy to navigate museum with artefacts of unique artistic value and archaeological importance. The finds come, mainly, from the Petras, Mochlos and Palaikastron excavation sites being dated to the 3rd and 2nd millenium B.C. The 1st millenium B.C. and roman remains from Sitia, Trypiti or Koufonisi are, also, noteworthy.
  • Very disappointed ! Delayed our visit from Monday to Tuesday as the opening times state that the museum is closed on Mondays. Arrived to find the gates locked and a scrap of faded paper stuck to a sign saying that the museum is closed on Tuesdays ! This was our visitors last day in Crete and she very much wanted to visit the museum. Please update your website showing the correct opening times !
  • Very informative but small, very good if your into your history, not a place to take children
  • Small museum, plenty of pieces exhibited acompanied with several posters with facts about the finds and the period they're from. Worth the 2 euros per adult (children got in free)
