War Museum of  Askifou

Though unfunded and unrecognized by the Greek government the collection of artifacts from the Second World War as well as previous wars and revolts by the late Mr. George A Hatzidakis is well worth the stop, especially for those with an interest in military equipment and firearms. Mr Hatzidakis travelled all over Crete collecting machine guns, pistols, helmets, medals, grenades, bombs, mines, cannon, cannon balls, anti-aircraft guns, uniforms, radios, and every German, British, and Greek artifact he could find. One can only wonder what he would have created here had he been given money and assistance by the Greek government.

Here are just a few of the things you will find at the War Museum which is now taken care of by his family. To get to the museum follow the signs once you get to the village of Askifou on the road between Hora Sfakion and Chania. Click on the firstphoto and then click your way through to see them all
