Summer camps at the NHMC began in 2004, and have remained popular with children ever since. Catering for primary school pupils, the camps last one week each and are held daily from early morning until noon.
NHMC Friends’ Association
The Natural History Museum of Crete is a landmark institution for Crete, and a major asset adding to the island’s cultural and scientific wealth. Following a decision by the University of Crete Senate, the financial and administrative management of the NHMC Exhibition has been placed in the hands of the NHMC Friends’ Association. The Association’s aim is to strive towards achieving the Museum's objectives, namely: protecting and managing our natural wealth; fostering environmental awareness; and strengthening and improving the museum’s infrastructure in every possible way.
