Completely and utterly rude man. No clear signs to show where to pay for the museum. An older man, who I presume was the owner, began shouting and screaming at our driver who remained calm and collected. None of us who visited will be returning.

We got there by chance on the way to Lasithi plateau, and it was a very good visit. The museum is very simply set - a few stations that mark and exhibit the main milestones in the evolution of human race. It was not only...More

Dears, This place has the history very nice and short expose. Won't be boring, you will have fun. Also, the views are much more beautiful that the ones from the parking lot. Parents enter for the kids if you as adults are not curious. Suggestion:...More
