Ierapetra Museum

Ierapetra Museum

Ierapetra was an incredibly important site, especially during the Hellenistic and Roman periods (323 BC to 395AD), and this museum reflects that. It also has a rather impressive array of Minoan and post-Minoan artefacts as well, including a clay burial chest, known as a larnax, figures and vases dating back to the 8th and 9th centuries BC, and some rather impressive statues. There is also the obligatory coin collection, which is as impressive as you’d expect given that Ierapetra is known to have minted 44 different coins

**At the time of writing, this museum is closed to the public, but call the number below in case it opens its doors again. When it is open, the collection includes Minoan finds from Elounda, Dreros, Aghios Nikolaos and Istron, as well as a collection of coins.
