Even if ancient remains do not excite, the Museum of Decorative Arts with its insight into life during the past couple of hundred years, will interest all the family. The Museum is to be found within a building that once served as the Knight’s arsenal and is home to an extensive array of Dodecanese artifacts and treasures. The Museum includes many old and hard-carved wooden furniture, along with brightly colored Rhodian style pottery and exquisite needlework are elegant reminders of an earlier culture, from the 17th century onwards. A reconstruction of the interior of a traditional Rhodian house provides a good insight into everyday life. Many exhibits seem to originate from the island of Symi where women could appear well provided with rich dresses.
