Tucked away in the medieval city of Rhodes, this popular museum couldn’t have a better backdrop. Walking through the lovely medieval structures gives a wonderful perspective on a visit to this museum. It also happens to be housed in what used to be “The Hospital of Knight”. As a result, the building itself is a sight worth noting.
The inside of course, holds so many treasures it is sure to leave you enthralled for hours together. Ancient Greece, Middle Eastern Lands and the medieval times all come together creating an amazing mélange of history and cultures. Needless to say, you will learn a lot about this island and Greece in general through the numerous artifacts that have been displayed here. It is sure to be an astonishing place to visit.

Definitely skip-able if you don’t have a lot of time on Rhodes or cane for the beaches. Not much here except some remarkable medieval gemstone seals, and the astonishing magnifiers, basically “jewelers loups”, made from rock crystal and lead used to carve the tiny intricate seals.
If you are a historical museum person, LOTS to see. If only a half day on a ship.. make it quick but plenty to see here. If looking at old stuff is boring.. not for you.
There is nearly 5,000 years of history in the museum. Give yourself a good few hours/ half a day to wonder around the area. It's not just a museum, there are gardens, court yards, a house to look around plus rooms upon rooms of ancient relics. Mosaics are everywhere dating back 2,000. Simply breathtaking. Well worth 10 euros which will also get you into the grand palace and the church of our lady.
Very impressive building, far bigger than it appears from the street. A host of historical artefacts to look at, plus gardens as well as the main historical building. For best value, get the single ticket that covers both museums and the palace of the knights for only €10 (half price if over 65 and an EU resident).
It's an alright museum for the entry fee. Most of the archeological exhibits are similar, although many of them are really interesting to see. I do feel like I got more from wandering throughout the old city than visiting the museum, but there were some interesting parts. We played 20 euro to enter, but we also got free entry to a bunch of other ancient buildings in the old city which is a fair price to be honest
