Practical Info

The floor space in the temporary exhibition is limited, so it is best to visit during off hours -- very early in the morning or late in the day.

We were able to arrive at the museum shortly after opening and were the only people there. Got to see everything in 90 minutes.

Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Heraklion Archaeological Museum
We got to the Knossoss Palace right at 9:30 and were able to go right in, no real line. When we got to the Archeological Museum, around noon, we were made to wait in line for about 45 minutes. They said that there was no such thing as a 'Jump the line' ticket. I asked 2 different people and got the same answer. It was annoying but the museum was amazing and worth the wait.

Perfect day trip to Knossos, Archaeology Museum, plus Lake Kournas

Full day trip to Knossos-Archaeological Museum-Heraklion city
Well worth it! We ended up on a ‘private tour’ due to C19 cancellations. Christine and Thanasis were welcoming, relaxed, informative and flexible. The mini bus was well equipped, modern and comfortable, including wifi and Covid necessities. The ‘snack’ was very filling and there were plentiful drinks including alcohol. Christine and Thanasis were lovely! What more can I say? Highly recommended. Made an unscheduled stop at Lake Kournas, because we wanted to see it.

Knossos Museum and Heraklion tour from Rethymno
The tour was excellent. Visiting the palace and the museum on the same day with a guide was one of the best museum experiences I've ever had because of all the contextualization. Our guide was great. Just lacks earphones.
