The collection has been on display since the summer of 2001, and it is housed in a building donated by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, in collaboration with the Municipality.
The exhibits come from many different sites of the Prefecture of Lassithi wider area, and they date from the Prehistoric years to the 4th century AD. The collection includes tools, pottery, jewellery and coins, most of which were discovered by local residents.
The 13 tablets that were unearthed in the sanctuary of Apollo Delphinios in Driros are believed to be the most significant of the exhibits. These inscriptions record official documents, laws and religious rules.
