About these ratings

Many say the Heraklion Archaeological Museum is a must-see in Crete -- and all of Greece, even -- for its extensive collection of Minoan art. Highlights include a mini-statue of a Snake Goddess and the Phaistos Disk, a clay tablet with symbols that have not been deciphered to this day.

You'll find this museum (also known as the Archaeological Museum of Iraklio) in central Heraklion. The museum has seasonal hours; call 2810/226-092 for more information on times to visit and admission prices.
