When to Get There

The museum is open daily from April through October, and from Wednesday-Monday, during the months between November and March. The best time to visit is between April and October, as certain collections—including the epigraphic and prehistoric exhibitions, and a small display of pithoi (Greek containers)—are only open in summer. Come in the middle of the day to escape the heat.

Rhodes Old Town

Surrounded by 14th-century walls, the UNESCO-listed Rhodes Old Town is a fascinating place to explore. The remnants of the ancient Temple of Aphrodite sit in Simis Square, though most of the star attractions date back to the Middle Ages, when the Knights of St. John took control of the island. Stroll down the atmospheric Street of the Knights (Odos Ippoton) and explore the magnificent Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes.
