This wonderful museum used to be the hospital of the crusaders. A lovely building now turned into a museum. Loved seeing the room that used to be the infirmary but now holds grave markers of the crusaders.

Lots of interesting stuff on display, especially if you're into archaeology or history - there isn't anything interactive or anything like that so kids are very likely to get bored. I'd recommend for adults though.

A great number of exhibits awaits the visitors in this museum, which ends up detailing a great part of Rhodes' history. Visiting a museum inside a historical building is thrilling. Don't miss the mosaics in the garden!

This is well worth a few hours exploration as it so much more than just the Hospital of the Knights. The Hospital of the Knights at the foot of the Street of the Knights is well worth a visit in it's own right but explore further and you get behind the facade of the Street of the Knights and into...

It feels like your missing out on a lot of the context with regards to the objects on display. This museum could do with getting an audio tour. The gardens were a nice place to chill for a bit though.

Great museum in old Rhodes town, it's in a very old castle building so that adds to the feel of the building. some of the rooms that they use are very old and make the artifacts within feel even more authentic then seeing them displayed in a sterile museum. very neat to wonder around this old building and see everything...

We've been to many museums all over the world and what makes this museum very interesting is that it is unassuming, quiet, peaceful and even refreshing in the heat all the while allowing you to view (absorb) the exhibits at your own pace. The exhibits are varied and span multiple millennia and you must explore every nook and cranny of... More

There's a lot of history and interesting artefacts there, so it's definitely a must-see while on the island.

Great place to spend an hour or two visiting right in the heart of the old town. The timeline museum provides extra context for a holiday.
