Muslims visiting the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes will not be able to find prayer facilities within the attraction. There are however a number of mosques located across the Medieval Town. Some of these mosques are extremely old and thus do not function. One mosque known to be open for prayers is the Mosque of Suleiman. Muslim visitors can therefore ask museum staff to guide them to this mosque, or another functioning mosque nearby when needed.
The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is not known to house a food outlet. Visitors will however be able to find many cafés and restaurants in the area surrounding the museum. Muslim tourists may also be able to find a couple of Halal restaurants, due to the city’s sizeable Muslim population. They can make inquiries regarding this while at the local mosque.
