Archaeological Museum of Iraklio reopens after 7-year revamp

The Archaeological Museum of Iraklio on Crete, which hosts the world’s best collection of Minoan artifacts, reopened on Tuesday after more than seven years of repairs and refurbishment.

In a statement on its website, the Culture Ministry said the museum’s exhibition of Minoan artifacts would be open to visitors daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The museum closed in November 2006 for a revamp. Most pieces in the museum’s collection are examples of the island’s Minoan civilization, which thrived from around 2,700 to 1,450 BC, but exhibits date from the Neolithic period to Roman times.
