The Chania Naval Museum occupies part of the Firkas Fortress. Chania was an important port, and this museum presents old portraits of Greek admirals and historic battles as well as the relics of the weapons and ships that fought in them, and some modern replicas of said ships! There's also an interesting exhibition about ancient navigational equipment.
