  • For me, this has to be the best museum in Rhodes. It can keep you enthralled for a few hours, and believe me, time just flies by. The Ottoman House is beautiful, and there are gardens, fountains and other exhibits to keep your attention. Its a fantastic way to see how Rhodes used to be. For me, I found the Acropolis in Lindos fascinating how it used to look. The museum is on multiple levels, so there are many steps to climb. Bear this in mind for people with limited mobility. There are also some exhibits you can not take photos of, but these exhibits are clearly signed before you enter the exhibition room. The cost is €8, but you can buy a ticket for €10 that will get you in to the 4 museums in Rhodes. This museum is well worth a visit.
  • You can get a ticket for all four POI on the street of knights for just €10. Really good value of you visit each attraction, the museum was my favourite and definitely had a lot to offer in terms of history and some good photo opportunities! My personal favourite followed closely by the palace.
