The building houses an internal courtyard framed by a two-storey gallery on which the museum's halls and workshops open. Interesting vestiges are displayed in the garden as well as in the six rooms of the floor. These vestiges, discovered during archaeological digs, date from various periods in the history of the island. In the garden, the visitor can admire sculptures and funerary steles of the Hellenistic period. Different sculptures and remnants of funeral monuments are also exhibited outside the museum.

The museum houses the following collections:

  • Menus objects of funerary ensembles of the ancient Ialysos and the ancient Kamiros of the geometric and Classical period: vases, idols, jewellery, metal objects, containers and small objects.
  • A collection of classical, Hellenistic and Roman period sculptures.
  • Mosaic soils from the Hellenistic period from the town of Rhodes and from Paleo to Karpathos.
  • Burial plates of the period of the Knights with relief representations of the dead and their weapons.

 

THE HETEROGENEOUS PAST OF RHODES

In Rhodes, every corner of the city, every stone on the island contains a parcel of its 2,400 years of history. The ancient city of Rhodes, whose construction began around 408-407 B.C., was conceived according to the Checkerboard plan invented by the great urban planner of antiquity, Hippodamus de Milet. The city of Rhodes was considered one of the most beautiful of antiquity with the most perfect organization, of which we know today the layout of streets and squares as well as the location of the buildings. In the years of its first splendour, Rhodes became one of the most important commercial and maritime centers of the eastern Mediterranean. Beyond its commercial and maritime successes, Rhodes will also occupy an important place in the field of arts, letters and philosophy. Later, although relayed to the role of a Roman province among many others, Rhodes will never lose its strategic importance in the economic and cultural life of the region, despite the years of splendour and power of the Hellenistic period being Now gone. AuIVes. A.D., the Hellenistic city occupies only the territory it will retain throughout the Byzantine period. Under the constant threat of the Arab invasions that appear as early as the 7th the city is fortified first by the Byzantines who divide the city in two: On one side, the Acropolis (on which the palace of the Grand Master will later rise) and, on the other, the city ( Bass).

In 1309 A.D., the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem settled on the island and made it their European headquarters. Rhodes will become one of the most important intermediate stations for pilgrims en route to the Holy Land. The Hospitable Knights – the name under which they are also known – reinforce the ramparts of the capital of the island which include the ancient Byzantine ramparts and encircle a territory that will exceed two-fifth of the ancient Byzantine settlement, Although less than a quarter to that formerly occupied by the Hellenistic city. An internal wall travels the city from east to west, dividing it in two. The Northern Quarter, also known as Collachium, is the administrative centre of the Habitat and includes, among others, the Grand master's Palace and the hospital. The greater South quarter, known as the Bourg, became the living heart of the city, with inhabitants of different origins – the peoples of Western Europe, the Jews and above all the Greek Orthodox Christians.

In 1522, Rhodes was conquered by the Ottoman Turks. During the Ottoman occupation of the island, the ancient city was enriched by new buildings, especially mosques and Turkish baths.

In 1912, Rhodes passed under Italian domination. In 1929, the medieval walls and cemeteries around the ditch were declared historic monuments. The ramparts are stripped of the fireworks added during the Ottoman Empire and are restored. The work continues with the reconstruction of the palace of the Grand Master and the restoration of the street of the KnightsIn order to give them the true medieval European style.

In 1948, the Dodecanese Islands are attached to the rest of Greece. After the years 1960 and the official recognition, by the Ministry of Greek Culture, of the city as a Monument of the cultural heritage, the archaeological Services under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture are building up the reconstruction of The medieval agglomeration. From 1985, the municipality of Rhodes participated in the restoration work in collaboration with the Greek archaeological Services – Ephorate of antiquities.

In 1988, the medieval city of Rhodes is included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Network, in recognition of its unique intercultural architectural richness. The city of Rhodes is, among other things, a founding member of the Organization of World Heritage Cities upon the creation of this Organization (1993). In 2003, Rhodes successfully hosted the 7th Symposium of the Organization of World heritage cities with the participation of nearly 1000 representatives – mayors and experts – from historic cities around the world.
