The Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania is located in the catholicon of San Salvatore monastery, a 15th-century structure.
The purpose of this presentation is to describe the historical and artistic personality of Chania’s county during the Byzantine and post-Byzantine centuries.
Mosaics, burial inscriptions, wall paintings, icons, architectural sculptures, pottery, minor arts, and coins have been grouped into sections based on the type of object.
Each unit’s objects are presented in chronological order. Visitors can learn about the provenance of the items on display as well as the historical context of their time period from maps and explanatory panels.
Archaeological guides and books are sold at the museum’s ticket office near the entrance.
