Aegean Maritime Museum
Dive into the deep blue history at the Aegean Maritime Museum, a fascinating stop in Ancient Greece's land of sailors. The 19th-century building was once home to sea captain Nikolaos Sourmelis, who assisted the people of Crete during the Greek war of independence from the Ottoman Empire. In the museum garden, a reproduction of the Armenistis Lighthouse and marble gravestones tell moving tales of sailors lost at sea.
