Nikos Kazantzakis was an important intellectual, author, thinker and philosopher of Crete. The Museum is made up of a cluster of buildings in the central square of the historical village Myrtia. The fundamental aim was to preserve the author’s memory and promote his work and thought.  The Museum holds manuscripts and notes by the author; samples of his correspondence with major thinkers, politicians and authors of his time; first editions of his works in Greek and other languages; rare photographic material; souvenirs from his travels; personal effects; models, costumes and other material from theater productions of his works in Greece and abroad; portraits and sculptures of the author; dozens of foreign-language editions of his works from all over the world, all a legacy that brings alive the memory of  Nikos Kazantzakis and promotes his work and personality.

Every day, visitors arrive from all four corners of the globe, bearing witness to the lasting relevancy of the word expressed by the great Cretan, universal author and thinker.
