At the Archaeological Museum of Iraklio, the exhibition “Daedalus: In the Footsteps of the Legendary Craftsman,” runs through March 1st of 2020.
According to a new survey by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) the number of visitors to Greek museums and archaeological sites saw incredible increases as of 2018.
In the late Spring of 2018 the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organisation helped organize an amazing cultural event in Heraklion. The Contemporary Minoans design event held 11 and 12 May at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum should have been made Crete branding exercise, but it wasn’t. Instead, the event stands as a stark reminder of what the term “uncommitted” means for Greece.
