From Heraklion to Myrtia there is a bus at 14:30 which cost only 2-3 euros and takes you to the outskirts of the little village in about an hour. From there to the museum it is a 3 minute walk.

The thing is that the only bus from Myrtia to Heraklion is at 09:00 am, so to get back from the museum on public transport is a bit complicated.

The museum itself is marvelous so any solution (taxi...) even if expensive is worthwhile

Worth the trip
The Kazantzakis museum was renovated about 3 years ago, and the transformation makes this destination worth the trip!

The museum is beautifully laid out with wonderful details on the background of his life, travels and times (in history). Also seeing the layouts of plays, movies and operas was outstanding!

It was fun going from room to room and seeing the modern touches enhance the experience! Being able to “flip through” a letter from Albert Einstein is one example of the genius of this museum.

Wonderful! Worth the trip!!

Took visiting friends here and look forward to stopping by with my next set of visitors.

Trip down memory lane
Took visiting friends and Kazantzakis fans from New York to see the museum and home of Nikos Kazantzakis. I had not been there for a few years. I was so pleasantly surprised. The fully renovated museum is world class. DO NOT MISS. Make the time to also visit its gift shop/book store across the square. Knowledgeable staff and lots of book options. Loved it.
PS on the way back to Heraklion stop by the Olive and Mint restaurant in Skalani village about four km north of the museum. It will make for an awesome all around day. Enjoy
