Museum of the Battle of Crete and the National Resistance - Overview

  The Museum was created by the Municipality of Herakleion, following the organization of an exhibition of documents of the period 1941-1945, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary from the Battle of Crete(1941).
  It is housed in a large hall of a building in the centre of the town. The Museum exhibits include thousands of authentic photographs, paintings and drawings of the Battle of Crete and the national resistance, about two hundred books, monographs, essays on the historic events from 1941 to 1945, hundreds of documents and a record of newspaper cuttings. The Museum also includes a variety of objects related to the war (arms, accessories, uniforms, items of everyday use etc.).
  The museum is also a research center, its main project being the history of the Battle of Crete. Within this framework the museum's staff of researchers and scientists are currently focused on the collection of archival material from ten countries and the translation of war documents of the 1940-1945 period.
