Bee Museum
Bee Museum

Visit the one and only Bee Museum in Greece, located in Pastida, to see up close the fascinating world of bees in transparent observation hives and experience the tradition and history of beekeeping in Rhodes.

The idea for the foundation of the Museum belongs to the beekeeper Nikos Melissourgos, offspring of the historic family of beekeepers from Naxos and president of the Beekeeping Association of Rhodes for the last 15 years, who was driven by his passion, love and admiration for bees and his fellow men. The Museum was constructed in 2004, was recently renovated and is maintained by the Beekeeping Company of the Dodecanese, the largest company of production and standardisation of bee products in the Dodecanese.

A visit here will give you the opportunity to know everything regarding bees and their valuable products (honey, pollen, beeswax, propolis and royal jelly), interact with digital exhibits and educational games, take a walk in a bees’ garden and learn about the herbs and flowers of Rhodes, which bees visit.
