This museum in Hania, provides, amongst other interesting exhibits, an excellent overview of the Battle of Crete. It encompasses displays of uniforms and equipment from the period including a focus on the Royal Navy's operations in the theatre in which they lost 1,800 sailors. An interesting display on the ground and first floor charts the history of the Greek Navy to modern times and the establishment and development of the harbour in Hania.

Whilst in Hania it is well worth exploring this historic town which has Venetian influences and was ruled for 250 years by the Turks. Particular recommendations are the Cathedral, Etz Hayyim Synagogue and Mosque of the Janissaries.
