The Archaeological Museum of Agios Nikolaos was created to exhibit finds from eastern Crete which until then were transported to the Museum of Heraklion. The exhibition has not been finalized yet, but does cover a huge period from the Neolithic Age to the end of the Greco-Roman period. Visitors can follow the evolution of art in the region through representative samples of various styles and eras. Largest and most important groups are the offerings from the Early Minoan cemetery of Aghia Fotia, near Sitia (3000-2300 BC) in the first room and the findings from the palace of Mallia brought to light by the investigations of the French Archaeological School, in the fourth room. Most famous object is considered the libation vessel that became known as the "Goddess of Myrtos".
