The Archaeological Museum of Agios Nikolaos, the seat of the prefecture of Lassithi in Crete, was founded in 1970 to house the results from numerous excavations in Lassithi that had previously been housed in Heraklion’s Archaeological Museum. The museum is located in the heart of Agios Nikolaos, near the port and the sea lake, and its displays span 3,000 years of Cretan history.
Visitors can see vases, clay figurines, jewelry, weaponry, tools, and other valuable material from the early Minoan cemetery with the 300 tombs in Agia Fotia; a libation vase in the shape of a female figurine from the settlement of Myrtos; an early Minoan golden diadem with a relief decoration presenting three goats; findings from late Minoan tombs in Kritsa and Milatos; and various Archaic and Roman exhibits
