At the end of April, the town of Agios Nikolaos regained quite a tourist attraction. The Archaeological Museum, which has been closed for many years, is open to the public again, although for now to a limited extent. Due to the ongoing works until October, the Museum can be visited only on Saturdays and Sundays between 9.00 and 15.00.

The museum is completely renovated and organized in accordance with the latest museological and museographic concepts. It has already been recognized as one of the most modern museums that have been created in recent years in Greece. It presents elements of the history and culture of the Lassithi region from the Neolithic era (around 5000 BC) to the end of the Roman era (around 400 AD).

For the first time, this museum exhibits late Roman-early Byzantine artifacts found in early Christian basilicas.

One room of the museum is dedicated to ancient coastal settlements that played an important role in maritime trade. The floor is very interesting and innovative because it resembles the seabed. It was created from sea sand brought from excavations carried out on the island of Chrissi, and sea urchin shells were scattered on the sand. This original seabed is covered with heavy-duty thick glass that visitors walk on. Of course, as the head of the Lassithi Antiquities Ephorate, Mrs. Chryssa Sofianou, emphasizes, the extraction and transport of the sand was legal in every respect and all permits from the Coast Guard, the Ministry of Culture and other services were obtained.

In numerous showcases you will find exhibits from various archaeological sites from this region of Crete: Makry Gialos, Mochlos or Chrissi island. An underground Minoan tomb with clay urns, vessels and other equipment has also been recreated here. An important part of the exhibition are finds from the now sunken city of Olous, which in antiquity played a rather controversial role.

Already shortly after its opening, the new museum is attracting a lot of interest. Probably in the full tourist season it will experience a considerable siege, because Agios is one of the most touristic places in this region. When going here, however, you need to remember that for the next few months the museum will be open to the public only on weekends. This limitation of availability will probably sweeten the free admission a bit.
