A short distance outside Kato Archanes (Lower Archanes), on the road to Heraklion, there is the Cretan Historical and Folklore Museum, where Michalis Psaltakis has put on display typical objects of Cretan history and tradition from the 9th century to date, which he managed to gather from various Cretan villages. Items exhibited in the halls of the Museum include military objects from WWII (jeeps, tanks, Nazi automobiles, etc.), as well as old looms, wine stomping vats, machinery for the production of olive oil, etc.
Visits can be arranged after contacting the Town Hall.
