Museum of Visual Arts
The Heraklion Museum of Visual Arts was established in order to support cultural and artistic activity of all kinds, with particular regard to the advancement and strengthening of the visual arts and the promotion of work by Cretan artists.
The museum acts as venue where artists, art lovers and their friends can meet and exchange views in a spirit of solidarity, co-operation and unity, and a place for aesthetic and intellectual cultivation, recreation and learning. To that end, the museum organizes educational seminars and lectures on matters relating to art, as well as conferences, concerts, seminars and publications. The venue is also suitable for use as exhibition space, for association meetings and for nationwide or European-level collaborative projects with other private or state-run museums.
