I am currently engaged in a project evaluating the relationship between the Knights Templar and Hospitaller and the opportunity to visit this spectacle during the course of an Eastern Mediterranean cruise could not be missed. Disappointingly the building has clearly undergone considerable renovation and I regret to say does not look authentic. That being said it is an impressive palace located at the top of the equally impressive 'Street of the Knights' and although considerable in size the opportunity to exhibit and describe Hospittaler material had not been maximised and the number of exhibits were not great. What were on display contained very little description or explanation by way of notices and the museum is crying out for a multi-national audio guide for the assistance of visitors. The authorities in Rhodes charge a nominal 6 Euro entrance fee and clearly do not maximise on what is a major attraction in the capital town. There was a large umber of attendants present in every room in the palace but their function appeared to be purely security as any questions posed to them did not produce much authoritative information. There is a lot of room for improvement and development in this museum which could greatly enhance the facility which did not provide me with any enhanced knowledge.
