  • Small but nice. Cheap but still with to see. Rethymno doesn't have so many attractions so going to this museum is cool. They have exhibits from 1700BC up till Renaissance, pretty cool when you realize.
  • Small but interesting museum. Ticket 2 EUR.
  • Very modern museum with exhibits shown in chronological order
  • The museum is small but well organised and cheap.
  • It moved here recently so as you will see it's in great condition. It is pretty small though, not many things to see inside.

Where to stay in Rethymnon

A growing number of visitors to Rethymnon choose to stay in one of the surrounding villages, where air-conditioned rooms near well-developed beaches cost considerably less than in the city itself. The elegant guesthouses just outside town provide a quiet night's sleep, as well as quick access to good shopping and dining options. If you prefer to stay in the thick of things, book a room near the city's Venetian port, a lively area that's just a walk away from the center's major attractions.
