A Day at the Museum of Natural History

Discover the Natural History Museum of Heraklion, Crete! Some of the Museum’s exhibitions include the following..

-The Mega-Dioramas constitute the biggest part of the Museum’s exhibition. These are realistic representations of ecosystems found in the Eastern Meditarranean region.

-The Giant Deinotherium of Crete is an impressive exhibit standing two floors tall. Based on fossil bones found on Crete, it is a life-size reconstruction of the third largest mammal ever to live in Earth.

-The Living Museum is a special arranged area with small scale aquariums and terrariums housing living animals that can be found in the Eastern Meditarranean region.

-The exhibition Dinosaurs-extreme the visitors can observe the life-sized dinosaurs. Sure, these creatures are animatronic models, but the realism of these dinos’ leathery skin, plush feathers, and moving eyes is enough to raise a goose bump or two. Displayed alongside model skeletons and actual fossils, these titanic animals offer an up-close glimpse of what Earth was like millions of years ago, before an asteroid made dinosaurs so skittish that they’ve hidden from the presence of humans ever since.

-The exhibition Light Mysteries includes aspects of holography and optics,through experiments and illusions.

-The “Erevnotopos” Discovery Centre is an area specially designed for our younger visitors, where they can dig for fossils and explore Cretan nature hands-on.

Enceladus, an earthquake simulator An earthquake simulator is operating at the Museum offering visitors the opportunity to learn about earthquakes and experience, in a safe environment, real powerful earthquakes (6.9 & 7.6 Richter!).
