Homo Sapiens Museum in Crete

If you are going to drive to the Lasithi plateau, there are two roads to choose between. If you choose to drive from the south, you will pass the Homo Sapiens Museum.

A few kilometres after the villages of Kato Kera and Ano Kera, there is a lookout point 803 metres above sea level. Here is also a museum that modestly calls itself the Homo Sapiens Museum. The view of valley is breathtakingly beautiful. There are a number of strange statues and some windmills outside the museum.

Everyone stops at the lookout point outside the Homo Sapiens Museum to take photographs.

The museum contains an exhibition about Homo Sapiens. Here you also have the opportunity to drink a cup of coffee or to eat some food. The museum is open every day from early April to the end of October between 09:00 and 19:00.

It is only 1 kilometre to the entrance of the Lasithi plateau from the Homo Sapiens Museum. It is an incredibly awesome experience when you leave the mountains to drive down to the plateau. Do not miss it!
