  • At every corner, a new Hall, a splendid view of the ancient treasures, "for real", happiness...

  • This site is worth visiting for its historical significance but the the display of the artifacts is not very engaging. The original use of the rooms is also poorly explained unless you have a guide.  more »
  • The exhibitions are ceramic pots and statues. A little bit boring. The building and gardens are stunning

  • If you like history, this really is the place for you. We spent almost 3 hours going round the exhibits. It is incredibly good value if you buy the 4 site tickets for €10, other than the museum, it includes the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Church of Our Lady of the Castle & the Modern Art Museum, (the ticket is valid for several days), OR if you have an ISIC student card, it is all free!!!
  • A nice little museum, free entry for students (with student ID) but a pricey €12 for anyone else... Some interesting exhibits and plenty of artifacts, but little interaction and also easy to get lost or miss bits out
  • Nice museum with a good selection of artifacts. Stunning setting and a nice time away from the crowds in Old Town.
  • An amazing collection of archaeological items showing the ancient history of Rhodes. But perhaps more memorable is the astonishing building in which the collection is placed. With s visit just to experience what was once the Knight's hospital.
  • It is a great place if you are interested in ancient history. I learned a lot from reading the information that is on offer. It amazed me how artistic people were in the civilisations BC.
