Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete

 
  Formerly known as the Kanakakis Gallery, this municipal museum was founded in 1992. Since 2008 the museum is housed in a renovated Venetian building - an old soap factory - in the old part of town.  The permanent collection houses works by local artist Lefteris Kanakakis and works by contemporary Greek artists.

The Rethymnon Centre for Contemporary Art organises exhibitions of local, national and international interest in co-operation with many agencies in Greece and abroad. All events are accompanied by lectures, training programmes, speeches and seminars.
