The Historical Museum of Crete was founded in 1953 and presents a comprehensive view of Cretan history from early Christian times to the present day. The original goal of those founding the Historical Museum of Crete was to collect and preserve valuable archaeological, ethnographic and historical material deriving from the medieval and modern periods in Cretan history. Extensive research and publishing, organizing exhibitions, educational initiatives and audiovisual media all form part of the modern educational role adopted by the Historical Museum of Crete over time, which helps us understand the many facets of historical development in Crete.
