Iraklion Archeological Museum

The Archeological Museum of Iraklion is probably the second largest in Greece. This is where most of the treasures discovered in Minoan ruins have been gathered, so it’s a mandatory step after Knossos. However, it is likely you will only enjoy, like me, the temporary exhibition, the museum being renovated. Here are some of the treasures on display.

And finally the Disc of Phaistos, a disc of clay, printed with symbols, whose meaning remains a mystery :
