The new museum of Eleftherna in Crete

The Museum of ancient Eleutherna – Homer in Crete, the first archaeological site museum in Crete, although smaller in size, is similar to those of Olympia, Delphi, and Vergina. The museum was created to house the results of the excavations carried out for thirty years in the ancient city of Eleutherna.

The originality of this museum is that the objects of the permanent exhibition will be updated periodically with new and older finds, so that the public’s interest is continuous and relates to the discoveries and expansion of the excavation work on the site.

The exhibition will be accompanied by original and modern audiovisual exhibits.

The project entitled “Building Complex of Eleftherna archaeological site museum – Travelogue” was implemented under the Operational Programme “Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship 2007-2013” (NSRF) of the University of Crete and the Ministry of Culture and Sport, who are the actors operation. In the southern wing of the building housed the Study Centre with its offices.

The effort was supported by private initiatives (Aristindin members of the Mediterranean Archaeological Society/ MAE), Organizations, Institutions, and individuals).
