Additional Details

  • The Maritime Museum of Crete was founded in 1973, on the 32st anniversary of the Battle of Crete. The Founder was Vice Admiral Ar. Giannopoulos H.N. The local press pointed out during the opening day of the museum: "The Maritime Museum is a great proof of the interest and love for our glorious Greek Navy, which continuing its wonderful traditions in war and peace, bequeaths to this provincial city of Greece a cultural space congruent with the best ones of that type in Europe". The Maritime Museum of Crete is the second oldest Maritime Museum in Greece, after the Maritime Museum of Greece in Piraeus and it welcomes approximately 45,000 visitors every year.
