The Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, in Crete, is one of the most important museums in Europe and renowned for its knowledge and collections of the Minoan culture.

The building consists of 22 rooms in which it is exposed, following a chronological order, a considerable amount of material from any point on the island and witness the ancient Minoan civilization.

The collection is extremely diverse: statues, inscriptions, sarcophagi, pottery, jewelery, rythoi (vases used for libations during religious functions), and tools of every day life, that provide a good prospective on the customs and traditions of the historical period.

There are also models and reconstructions of the major Minoan palaces and above all, the famous frescoes of Knossos partially reassembled.
