Education / For schools
Here at the Historical Museum of Crete, educational activities drawing on both permanent and temporary exhibitions have been held since 1996, their central aim being to bring cultural heritage to the fore. The HMC’s educational prgrammes are led by a qualified museum educationalist and cater for pupils at all levels. Participation is free of charge; interested teachers should contact the Museum’s Educational Programme Department to arrange their visit. In special instances the programmes can be held in English, to cater for the needs of non Greek-speaking pupils in Heraklion (the English-language classes at the European School), or groups of pupils visiting Greece from abroad. Interested parties should contact the educationalist to make the necessary arrangements.
