“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

At least 90 minutes are needed to visit this museum, do not miss the gardens with the mosaics. Some update in the explanations of the exposed items would be needed, as these are very basic and do not allow the visitor to understand their context in Rhodes history. We were also very disappointed about the lack of facilities for people with small children who need to move in strollers or anyway people with disabilities. Although on the museum plan there seemed to be a special elevator, first they refused to use it because they told us that it was for special cases (?), then because they were understaffed and they had to spare one of their staff to help us, then that it was not allowed for strollers, then that it was broken and they were trying to fix it. Every museum should guarantee access and it is a shame that this is not the case, especially as the entrance they use has several steep steps.

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Nothing to look at from the outside with not much more upon entering, walk up the stairs and start exploring to find beautiful garden areas and intriguing history. Explanations of the exhibits in English really allowed us to understand what we were looking at. Not an expensive visit, 6 Euros each and with a small cafe plus a vending machine with cold drinks you are well catered for. Have a good look around as there are some vastly differing areas to explore.

“Much more to see than you first think”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Very interesting museum. At first you think it is a few broken statues, etc., but persevere since the building itself is very interesting, as are the mosaics on the walls in the gardens and there is a 'hidden' small lodging at the back of the gardens that relates to the Ottoman occupation. More interesting than the Citadel itself, I thought!
