We liked this museum even not being naval enthusiasts. There are lots of models and maps and I would say that the focus is on WW2 and forward and that suited us very well. Also the Minoan war exhibition was really interesting.

Our first port of call when visiting Chania was the Maritime museum. Reason being ,my father in law was in the Royal Navy during the Battle of Crete in 1941. Photographs of his ship,HMS Lanner were displayed.

This is by far the best of the two maritime museums in chania. The 3€ entrance fee is well worth it. Take the kids loads to see.
