Museum of Popular Decorative Arts Collection

The Popular Decorative Arts Collection of Rhodes is housed in a Weapons Arsenal in Argyrokastrou Square in the Medieval Town.

There are folk art objects displayed in specially designated areas in the rooms of the museum which give a representative picture of how the interiors of Turkish houses looked during the Turkish occupation.

Among the items you will see up close include wood carvings, ceramics, embroidery, mirrors, traditional costumes, mainly from the Dodecanese (Symi, Halki, Tilos, Nisiros, Karpathos etc), as well as from other areas in the rest of Greece.

The examples of Nikaia pottery (16th-19th century), plates from Kioutahia homes, ceramics of European origin (19th-20th century) and pottery samples from various parts of Rhodes stand out.
