Museum of Cretan Ethnology

The Museum of Cretan Ethnology, with funding from Greece and the European Community, has undertaken the promotion of traditional Cretan society on the Internet within the framework of the national “Information Society” programme.

The Cretan Society

The intrinsic interest of Cretan society is obvious, given that it has preserved its typical cultural characteristics and ancient ancestral memories unchanged down the ages, in spite of 700 years of uninterrupted occupation by the Venetians and the Turks.

Cultural Heritage

The Management and scientific collaborators of the “Museum of Cretan Ethnology” Foundation hope that this presentation will attract the attention of visitors to our countryside and impress on them the power, simplicity and good taste of Cretan popular culture.
