Archaeological Museum Of Rethymnon Crete

Rethymnon Prefecture – Rethymnon


Details / Information  Overview:

The Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon is accommodated since 1991, in the pentagonal building, opposite the main gate of the Fortetsa. The building was constructed by the Turks Turks in an effort to strengthen the city’s defense. Due to the different functions that it served over the centuries – until the 1960’s, it housed the civic prison – its original form has been significantly altered.  The first collection began in 1888.

In the museum, the visitor can see discoveries from the Neolithic up to the Roman era, from various areas of the prefecture.

The most important exhibits of the Museum are: a clay larnax decorated with a hunting scene, a figurine of the Minoan goddess, a marble statue of Aphrodite, a marble violin-shaped figurine, a clay model of a shrine, a stone model of an offering table, a pyxis strainer from Stavromenos, a head of a terracotta female figurine, a part of a marble funerary stele and a part of a marble funerary stele.
