The Museum is unique and its establishment is owed to the concern of a group of people for the bee and the benefits it offers to the human being. At the museum, the visitor will get information about the history of bee-keeping, knowledge about the biology of the insect, about how the bee uses the pollen and how it makes the “royal jelly”, the honey and the wax.

An emphasis is given to the presentation of different kinds of honey and the special features of the Greek and Rhodian honey. In the museum there are also displayed the tools used in apiculture and in the production of honey. There is also information about the architecture of the hives and the visitor can see how the bee-keepers take the honey. Also, the visitor can watch the bees living and working within the hive, as the museum has hives of glass which permit to watch the whole process.
