Crete-Aquarium - Impressive !

From outside you wouldn´t expcet too much from this place. It´s an expressionless building in the former american base. Empty buildings all around and except some dust not a lot around.

When you enter the excibithion you´ll get caught up in the variety of fish and other sea plants and animals.

Since it is a very detailed exposition I recommend to book with audio guide. (only 3 Euros per person)

The entrence fee is 9 Euros for adults, 6 Euros for children and free for kids till the age of 4 years.


The opening hours are:


1. Mai  - 30. September 09:30 - 21:00

1. October - 30. April 09:30 - 17:00


100% recommendation for a nice afternoon for young and old!

If you want to go for a swim after the museum, you can reach the public beach of Gournes within a few minutes. You can relax  and your kids can splash around in the very shallow water.
