Knossos and Archeological Museum Heraklion tickets

Hello again,

Looking for some guidance on visiting these sites. Our current plan is to visit Knossos during the late afternoon/evening on a Friday. I know the site doesn't fill up but have read the queues to buy a ticket can be long. If we plan to visit at that time of day, is it likely the crowds will be light enough where we shouldn't have to wait in line long for a ticket?

And we'd like to visit the Archaelogical Museum early the next morning before leaving town. I assume we could buy a combo ticket when we enter Knossos and use it the following day at the Museum?

Thanks again!

In my experience, late-day at Knossos will NOT be crowded, since the big rush is inthe Morning for Cruise crowds and package-tour groups, and it thins out around 3-ish. You'll be fine.

Thanks Leonard and Janet.

Useful info. We won't worry about getting tickets in advance as we plan to show up around 3pm and hopefully the crowds will be light by then. We'll purchase a combo ticket for 20euro and intend to use the ticket early the next morning for the museum.

Thanks again!
