This palace burned down before but it was renovated. I liked the mosaics which were brought from another island to there and I highly recommend to read more about the meanings of mosaics... Most of the furniture inside the building was brought there and don't represent the actual time. However, it is nice to see everything with perfect mosaics...

If you do not visit this palace, then you have not met the Medieval spirit of Rhodes... the entrance takes your breath and after your visit there, make sure you tske the medieval road of Knights to the harbor of Rhodes

Really very well organised museum covering the history of Rhodes from the beginning to modern times. There are lots of fascinating exhibits and very clearly labelled with explanations in Greek and English. Be sure also to visit the Archaelogical Museum as the two go nicely together and are complementary.
