Chania Museums - Located in the mountainous village of Askyfou, just 50 kilometers south of Chania, Crete, the Askyfou War Museum is a must-visit attraction for history buffs. Founded by local resident Georgios Hatzidakis in 1931, the museum houses an impressive collection of weaponry dating back to the Cretan Revolution of 1770. Hatzidakis began collecting weapons at just 14 years old and has since amassed a diverse collection that includes guns, revolvers, carbines, mortars, mortar shells, binoculars, and military uniforms. Visitors can also view relics from the Second World War, such as the helix of a German helicopter that fell during the Battle of Crete in May 1941. The museum's oldest exhibit is a canon from 1770, while the largest exhibit is a German bomb. Don't miss your chance to explore this fascinating museum and learn about the region's rich military history.
