A good museum. Gives an insight into traditional dress and the way of a life not really seen in this modern age.

One room with not a lot in it... only 3 euros but for the 5 minutes it took to look around, not really worth the visit.

Unfortunately can't comment on the collection. Just a warning that the museum is currently closed for the winter (as of Oct 2) so maybe it closed at the end of September. Too bad, as there were loads of tourists around. So if you want to...More

This museum is well worth a look round for two reasons, firstly to get a better understanding of the culture and secondly to split up the day with a little "inside" out of the sun time.

Not much is written in English and what is, doesn't give you a lot of information. You can't take pictures, would be more interesting if you knew more about the exhibits. I wouldn't recommend going.

An interesting folk museum which gives you an insight into the dress of the day also more or less how the people lived

We spent 45mins out of the heat in this little museum in Agios Nikolaos. 4€ per adult, children free. Lovely collection of items, photos and books from the recent past of the town. Beautiful embroidery.... why don't the Cretian gift shops sell reproductions of these,...More
