Das Archäologische Museum von Rhodos (griechisch Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Ρόδου) ist ein Museum mit archäologischem Schwerpunkt im ehemaligen Hospital des Johanniter-Ordens in Rhodos-Stadt.
A remarkable collection of artefacts housed within a very impressive building. There's also a pretty garden area. Entry was €3.00 but we got in for free because we're students. Children also get in for free.
Great collection of rich finds from a long time ago. Beautifully laid out in a very historical setting, the hospital of the knights of St John. Additionally there is a courtyard and a garden, also outfitted with lots of objects. You can easily spend some hours here.
Very nice collection! Wide selection of all eras... personally i would prefer if the signs were clearer and the rotation of the visitor in the museum more cohesive.
Fabulous museum! If you use your student card if you have one it is free entry too! Very hot inside but well worth it even in August!
This museum is great! It covers the fascinating history and culture of Rhodes beginning in Paleolithic times onward through the centuries. The exhibits are housed inside castle rooms as well as outside in the lush and beautiful gardens. Along with the expected statuary, ceramics, and architecture, you will find panoramic exhibits, enormous mosaics, restored buildings and rooms, graves stones, and more. The Marine Venus mentioned in Lawrence Durrell's book, "Reflections on a Marine Venus" is housed here. She is truly lovely, the softest looking piece of marble I have ever seen.
Well worth a visit. The entrance is on Apellou just before it joins with Ippoton. I mention this as most navigation apps point you to Ippoton & the door is easy to miss. The opening times seem to be up for debate so I would recommend arriving before 2pm with the expectation of the experience lasting approx 1 hour. The entrance fee is meant to be about 8 Euros but for reasons I did not quite understand we got in for free. The exhibits are very well preserved & certainly worth the effort.
Very nice and well organized museum. Some uniqueness...to findout by youself ;-)
This place will remain in my memory for a long time.. love it!
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.
It is a kind of safe for all findings from Rodos. Too many same objects for museum. This is my average museum tourist perspective view! It my be very good if you are an argeologist!
Well worth a visit, lots to see and learn about Rhodes. Lovely way to spend a few hours.
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!!!
Really nice museum with lot of different exhibits. Friendly staff how explained everything. Buy a combo ticket to see the other museums in Rodos also.
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.
Definitely skip-able if you don’t have a lot of time on Rhodes or cane for the beaches. Not much here except sone remarkable medieval gemstone seals, and the astonishing magnifiers, basically “jewelers loups”, mage from rock crystal and lead used to carve the tiny intricate seals.
Worth a visit, no museum shop or it wasn't open which mystifies me. I'm not a creative person but the skill to create the sculptures is immense. The age of the artifacts is truly astounding. I liked that there was an attempt to explain the Mediterranean economy and how foreign nationals fitted with Greek society. The gardens are relaxing and when I was there quiet. They are strict on no photography in some areas you would think the signage would be enough but some people think they are above some observances. One thing that really got me cup ☕ design hasn't changed much in 2000 years.
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.
Great place if you are interested in very ancient pots. There are hundreds maybe thousands of them. Pot heaven. There are hundreds of stage bases where the statues have been hacked off. Short on statues, big on bases. So if you want to see a stauue base with a lot on top. Your in base and pot heaven. Lovely building worth a visit.
Interesting building (former medieval hospital) containing a lot of very similar broken pieces of carved stone. The garden out back however is quite interesting and has more impressive sculptures. Don't miss the easily overlooked Turkish mansion accessed from a quiet corner of the garden.
Its Beautiful location the price is very reasonable since we paid 10 Euro for this and the grand masters palace. With 3 different main exhibitions There is a large variety of things to enjoyment. Would recommend.
