About
Greece's unique Bee Museum was established in 2004 in Rhodes and quickly became one of the best in the world. It aims to present the tradition of Beekeeping in Greece as well as the marvelous world of Bees. When someone arrives at the Bee Museum we offer him Melekouni, the traditional sweet of Rhodes. Among other things, our visitors get the chance to watch bees producing honey in real time, get in touch with all of the bees' products, have fun playing interactive games and buy traditional products and sweet souvenirs.

There’s quite a bit of written information about bees but it needed something extra just to liven up the museum. Fascinating stuff nonetheless. Plus you get a free taste of local honey products at the end.

A really interesting museum with lots of information about bees and beekeeping, both past and present. Lots of good information about Bees in general - which was very interesting. Sadly all the interactive elements are not accessible due to covid-19. A nice little shop at the end too.

It is a great place. Very informative, interactive, surprising, cheap to enter (€4 adult, 2.50 senior), nice gift shop. We were able to sample some free traditional dessert and honey liquor. Highly recommended, very close to Rhodes Town

Very educative and interesting, you get to appreciate bees so much! Extremely nice work inside the museum and a unique architecture on the ceiling! You feel as if you have just entered a gigantic bee hive. Finding the queen among the bees in the glass hive was so much fun(and quite a challenge indeed)! The shop is a great opportunity to get pure Greek honey (this honey brand was internationally awarded for its taste - and not without reason, yummy!) in very good prices compared to touristic shops in the city and airport. Definitely try out the melekouni, it's super healthy and delicious (got myself loads for Holland). Also an incredible variety of honey based products from food to cosmetics to clothing. Make sure you pay a visit!

We had planned to go there as I'm interested in keeping bees already. Found it very informative and could even get the hubby excited. The little shop, where you can buy honey, cosmetics and other products, had reasonable prices and different tasters. We found it very informative as you get to see real bees in a glass hive, could try on a bee-keepers uniform and learned about the history of bee keeping on Rhodes. The tables and projectors seemed to indicate that they do proper presentations (perhaps for groups?). Entrance fee was 2,50€, which we thought were well spent.
P.S. even clean bathroom with toilet paper!

our 2years old daughter was thrilled, so were the parents :) very educational both for children and adults and the shop does not attack the customer but makes you feel welcome:) for sure worth a visit, especially since it is close to other major attracttions for children!

3 euros to get in, a bargain. Anything that somehow promotes Bees has got to be a good thing as fas as I'm concerned. Its a small museum so don't expect much, but its clean and modern. It has two transparent hives that you can see the Bees working in. A short video at the beginning gives some info also. You can be in and out in probably 30 minutes if you want. I'm quite interested in Bees so wanted to read the bits a pieces they had on display.

This is a place also where you can buy the honey they make. They have free tasters which were very nice so I bought the Pine Honey, way better than the stuff on sale at your local tesco. Without Bees we would be pretty screwed so its worth a trip to help support the industry.

When I retire, I am going to keep bees. So I am getting ready. If you are in to bees, then this is pretty good. Natural bee hang-outs, iron-age beehives etc. I thought it was great because I am in to bees. When you spend time in this place, it is very easy to feel yourself transported back to biblical times, with old cities like Lindos, and honey giving sustenance to John the Baptist. I really loved this place, but my family thought I was weird. I'd say if you are in to bees, and their absolutely vital role in pollenating most of our food crops, if you are bothered about colony collapse, or ecology, then you will find this place interesting. If not, it really isn't for you. UNLESS..... The live bee colonies are great to observe.
