The collecting of the museum exhibits began in 1888, on the initiative of the Greek Educational Association of Rethymnon. Until 1990 the museum was accommodated in the Loggia. In 1991 it was moved into a pentagonal building that can be seen in front of the Fortezza main gate.
The Municipal Art Gallery L. Kanakakis began functioning in 1992 in a Venetian building in the city centre, where the Rethymnon Centre for Contemporary Art has also been stationed since 1995.
The museum functions in a restored 17th century Venetian mansion, and the collection originates from donations and purchases. It numbers over 5.000 exhibits. The permanent exhibition areas extend into five rooms and mostly include traditional handicraft and folk art objects.
