It was fascinating to see how Crete was in the past and compare it to our similar museums in the UK.

The Natural History Museum (NHM) of Heraklion, with the Arcaeological and the Historical Museums are a must, while visiting Crete.

Usually museums are overwhelming, but this was just such a perfect, just right experience.
The gardens surrounding the museum and a lovely place to stroll and the views back to the Old Venetian Harbour from here a spectacular, especially at sunset.
