Museum Day2019

Free admission to all museums on Saturday 18th May
The free admission day is a perfect day to find out and visit cultural sites and museums both in the city and in the broader area of Rethymno, such as the museums of Eleftherna and Arkadi.

Rethymno is one of the most picturesque cities of Crete with a rich recorded history from the Palaeolithic to the Roman times. Of unique interest is the Archaeological Museum of Rethymno, located in the old town square. The collections of the museum include many finds from caves, settlements, and cemeteries of the Minoan years, objects of Geometric, Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods found during the excavations in the important ancient cities.

Rethymno has a high cultural activity and visitors can admire excellent pieces of Modern Art in the Museum of Contemporary Art Crete, located close to the city center.

Equally impressive is the Paleontological Museum providing the visitors with the opportunity to get acquainted with an important part of the evolution of Crete and the geological and paleontological changes during the past 300 million years.
