“Sare some time for this Gem”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Doesn't look very promising when you enter, but walk up the stairs and you'll find lots of gallery's with some great exhibits. Pity there isn't more information on them though.
We found that we spent three hours there !
If you have a student card present it for free admission, otherwise 6 Euro's.

“Lose yourself for half a day”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

There are so many artifacts here that even if you don't look at them all, you will still need a few good hours here. Upon arrival, don't be fooled into believing it's just two stories of rooms: there's an outdoor area and lots more to discover in attached buildings. Reading the information boards might get boring after a while, but they provide surprisingly interesting facts and opinions. We had planned a couple of hours followed by a day at the beach. We ended up spending about 4 hours here.

“A very popular and worthwhile museum!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The building which houses the Museum is the hospital of the Knights and itself is a marvel of design and construction. The buildings are beautifully made although in rough finished stone. The main hall of the hospital is a columned masterpiece complete with ( I believe) original woodwork and roofing.Knights tombstones are a feature in this huge room.A large courtyard dominates the building visually and the museum rooms are off the cloisters of the main structure.
Rooms are full of Archaeological finds on and around the Island and there is a staggering volume of grave goods that are redefining the history of civilisation on Rhodes.
Rhodes like Crete has attracted many invaders over the years and the Knights of St John had a good thing going here until the Turks gave them the flick!
The rooms can be hot in summer but take water, a hat and frequent breaks. There is a garden you can stroll in and enjoy the shade.
