    Beau musée mais pas de version française , dommage pour la compréhension de certaines pièces vu le prix qui est de 10€

    Lots of Minoan and Greek exhibits to be seen, need at least half a day, probably more, to see it all. Wonderfully set out with lots of information about each collection of exibits.

    Стоит идти посмотреть фрески. Остальное после афинского музея не так впечатлило. И сначала сходите в Кносс - они продают двойной билет за 15 евро - и в Кносс и в арх. музей. Отдельно не выйдет.

    Шикарный музей, но для хорошего понимания экспозиции потребуется знание английского или переводчик и терпение. :)

    Home of the famous Phaistos Disc! Be sure to check out the snake ladies and murals from Knossos.

    Observe the remarkable beauty of "La Parisienne" & "The Prince of the Lillies", two amazing murals displayed on the Museum’s second floor and the commanding simplicity of the clay sarcophagi.

    Is one of the most important museums in Greece! It exhibits findings from all the palaces of the Minoan era, figurines, Neolithic vessels, frescos, coins etc. Here you can see the famous ring of Minos

    Исторический музей с экспонатами времен минойской цивилизации. Можно увидеть оригинальные фрески, репродукции которых находятся в Кносском дворце.

    Completamente riaperto da maggio 2014. Moltissimi reperti interessanti, dall'età minoica a quella romana. Occhio a fare foto dove è vietato, i guardiani vi imbruttiscono.

    It's best to buy combo ticket for both museum and Knossos at once, you'll save 2 euros then
