When you find yourself on one of the most archaeologically important islands in the Mediterranean, one has to simply jump at the chance to see as many of the Islands ancient curiosities as possible. Thankfully, a lot of said curiosities are housed under this roof, which makes for a fantastic break from the usual tourist activities.

The museum is ideally visited on a cool day as the heat indoors could become unbearable. It contains some interesting artifacts but it is worth a visit for the historical building itself. This used to be the Hospital of the Knights of St. John, also known as the Knights Hospitallers. It was built by Grand Master Jean de Lastic in 1440 and later enlarged by Grand Master d'Aubusson. The building was restored by the Italian administration early in the 20th century.
