Enjoyed all the visit as a history lover. Well worth the money. Worth going late afternoon when not so crowded

Thank Marilyn B

It would be difficult to have a poor museum when you've got a history like Rhodes has got, but this museum is brilliant - truly amazing. We spent about 4 hours here; the museum goes on and on and we were awestruck at the finds which were very well displayed. The information and labelling was good but the print could have been bigger, particularly in some of the more dimly-lit displays.
If you're short of time you could quickly pass through the galleries but it would be a shame to miss anything, like the carved stone grave marker of 3 year old Loudos, a little boy who was killed by a cart around 50 B.C. Of all the exhibits this moved me the most. His parents' love for him is still tangible after two thousand years and, in a way, the little lad has achieved immortality.

a wonderful set up and quiet afternoon is what we spent exploring this museum. Worth the 6TL pp to enter, toilets on site.

The museum is located down the road from the Palace of Grand Masters, and you can easily miss it's entrance as it is locate on this road where where the madness of Rhodes with all it's restaurants, shops and bars starts.

The entrance is only 6 euros and the museum was open up to 8pm when I visited it and not 7.30pm as travel guide books said.

As you enter, you are 'hit' with so many interesting things, you do not know where to look first: the gorgeous courtyard, the stairs, the museum, rooms and courtyard located on the first floor - no wonder I was monkeying and dancing in all these empty spaces whilst taking so many pictures. The statues reminded me of Hercules, Afroditis and other many famous sculptures I saw in other locations in Greece and Italy!!!!! Once you descend into the quiet garden located at the back, you can further walk the stairs of the Turkish house or choose to visit a museum with great newly found exhibits, but unfortunately where you cannot take pictures until they will publish the work related to this new find!!!!!!
