Museum of Sea and Fishery Tradition



Traditional tools have been “trained” hard in the hands of our fishermen. Fishing boats, ancient anchros, harpoons and other means are now resting in our Museum, giving us the ability of deep thoughts on identification and memory.
We continue our tour in the depths of our Seas to admire and know many of their secrets through a rich collection of fish, shells, corals, sponges, sea urchins and other aquatic organisms.
In the multiple activity hall and in the stonebuilt amphitheatre we host different kinds of events under the beautiful Cretan sky and next to the charming sea of Kolymbari.
We walk in the courtyard of the museum where we can see small and big fishing boats. Here the visitor can rest in the kiosk of the Museum and buy souvenirs
