Siteia, Agios Nikolaos museum

Siteia, Agios Nikolaos museum

This is where you’ll find one of the great artefacts on Crete, namely the ‘Palaikastro Kouros’. A chryselephantine (golden and ivory) statue of a young man, thought by many to be a depiction of the boy Zeus. This is worth visiting the museum for, alone, but alone it’s not. A fabulous array of materials from all over the east of Crete, include Linear A tablets, coins, double-headed axes, and even a dwarf-hippo’s jaw-bone. Please check before-hand to make sure that this museum is open, as it was undergoing structural repairs recently.
