Minoan wall-paintings at Herakleion Museum

Reopening on Sunday

Exhibition hall of the Minoan wall-paintings at the Archaeological Museum of Herakleion (Crete) will (re-)open its doors to public on Sunday, November 4, in the framework of the project “Re-exhibition of the Collections of the Museum”, which is being co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and public funds.

The wall paintings from the Minoan palaces and mansions showcased in the new exhibition are among the most important exhibits of the Museum. They are all of high-quality painting art and depict aspects from the Minoan world, such as scenes of social life and religious activities, the Minoan palatial court and the Cretan nature.

Admission to the exhibition of the wall-paintings will be free, as to the hall of the museum’s sculptures which reopened in August. The temporary exhibition featuring a selection of the museums objects will continue (admission to this section is 4 euros).

The museum’s archaeologists will offer visitors free guided tours of the wall-paintings exhibition, in Greek and English language every Thursday and Friday until the end of November.
