Herakleio Museum Closed

rogueclassicism reports:

The archaeological museum of Iraklio on Crete will close for repairs on Nov. 13, the culture ministry said Wednesday.

The museum, which contains the world's richest collection of artifacts from the island's Minoan culture (3000-1100 B.C.) attracts around 250,000 visitors annually.

The minister did not say when the museum would reopen.

I visited the museum two weeks ago and I asked when it's going to open again. They told me that the works will last for at least TWO years.
