The inauguration is part of ongoing efforts to boost the town’s cultural and historical profile. Located in a former barracks originally built to be used as a hospital by the Venetians in the late 17th century, the museum, which houses artifacts dating from the 4th to the mid-15th century, will be open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. [Evangelos Bougiotis/ANA-MPA]
