Just wanted to give everyone a heads up... This museum was closed when we visited in March of this year (2007) I think they are moving the collection to a newer building. Not much info about when it would reopen, but if this is your main reason for visting Iraklion you would really want to find out if it has reopened first. Looking back,, I wish we had stayed in the Chania area for our entire week on Crete. Much prettier, quieter and cleaner. Exploring the western end of Crete was truly memorable.
