Museum in numbers


Our museum has traditionally been a space for approaching the life and work of the Cretan painter. Nowadays the visitors have become the center of the museum's life. The Museum opens its doors as a public and interactive space, capable of integrating its public and promoting critical debate around its collections and the institution itself. The museum invites everyone to participate through its cultural activities, hoping to meet our audience's expectations, and promoting cultural knowledge. Therefore, knowing our visitors and their opinions is crucial.
