If you are interested in history, you should definitely visit the Art Gallery. Here you can see all the old Greek sculptures and statues, read some of the history of Greece, and see and read about the old ways of living. The atmosphere is relaxing, and you should really use some hours here.

This was quite a surprise. There are three separate galleries all of which are accessed with one very reasonably-priced ticket.

There were three(3!) buildings with excellent pieces of painting. You pay one ticket and you can visit and the three. Classic approach and modern artworks. The richest collection were at the the square of Simis but also the Nestoridion Melathron Museum which is at Square of " 100 Chourmadies" near the Aquarium has very interesting paintings although less in number.

In fairness we should have allowed more time for this,so really I can only give a short opinion unless I visit again. I have visited better ,and worse within a gallery. Perhaps you need to view for yourselves with more time than I had

We didn't know what to expect. The collection is very broad in styles. There is something for everyone and a visit can be put in anybody's schedule (maximum 30 minutes).

A quiet refuge, with a thought provoking and beautiful exhibition of huge charcoal drawings by a Greek artist. I have been several times on visiting Rhodes and each time have enjoyed the exhibitions. Pleasant helpful staff.
