Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our fourth visit to Minoans World and it was, once again, a great experience! The video is a perfect introduction to the history of Crete and the Minoan people. It's just long enough without anyone getting bored, kids and adults alike. Highly recommend!

It´s a great 9 D cinema experience in atmosphere where everything is so unpredictable! Thrilling mix of Cretan myths, Greek mythology and immersive special effects. The staff help you to take photos before the movie starts. All process is very well organised and instructed to get the best experience seeing the movie. Since we were the only visitors at the time, it felt like we got a private visit at Minoan´s World, which made that even more memorable and special. Excellent experience, fun way to spend some time in Chania. Enjoyed every moment of it!

I was told that I can't sit in the seat for the experience as I might be too big. When I showed the staff member that I could sit in the seat with no problem and not touching the sides, I was still told that I can sit in a stationary chair. They claim it's for safety, I've been to this type of 3D/9D experience before and have NEVER been told this and had no problems enjoying tge experience. This place was EMPTY, I was the only customer at the time so, to be harrassed over a seat... Beyond inappropriate and disrespectful. Waste of time.

Thank you for your feedback. We regret any inconvenience caused. Your safety is our utmost priority. As we explained at the reception (also available online), there is a limitation to the accessibility of the 9D seats due to the movement of the chairs. As an alternative, we offer foldable chairs without movement to ensure your safety. This review violates Google's policies as you did not participate in the experience.

Lots of lighthearted fun. The 3D (9D) Minoan history movie has snow, wave spray, rain, motion and yet still delivered some fun history. A must do for kids of all ages (including middle aged kidults like us). We had a blast.

What a fun experience to kick off our trip in Chania. The hostess was really friendly, informative and helpful. The '3D' museum is a bit cheesy, but very fun to be silly and take some fun selfies and photos with the family. It was nice to get out of the sun, and be entertained. The movies they showed were really fun and definitely had a fun '9D' experience. We laughed and smiled through the whole thing, and certainly learned a lot about Crete and some Greek mythology during several of the movies. It was great fun and thought it was well worth the money for a fun treat.
