Archaeological Museum

Opened in 1991, this modest museum features many ancient Minoan artefacts. Discover the mystical relics of the Clay Larnax, the figurine of the Minoan goddess and the marble statue of Aphrodite. Built by the Turks to strengthen the city's defense, the building was once used as a civic prison.
