This small outstanding museum is off the beaten track and likely to be missed by busloads of tourists. It is worthy of a visit. Well-marked and labeled in English and in Greek, the collected items give a comprehensive picture of traditional life in Crete, focusing on all aspects of life there: food harvesting and preparation, local herbs, agricultural tools, weaving, baskets, building tools, musical instruments and lovely old black and white photos. It is located in the town of Vori - near Phaestos and Matala - on the South shore of Heraklion Prefecture in Crete. The staff is courteous and well-informed and the entrance fee in April 2011 was 3 Euros. A bargain!
