Museum of Natural History of Rhodes

Within the area of the Valley of the Butterflies, there is also the Museum of Natural History, established by the local Municipality. The Museum is housed in a nicely restored and renovated Italian house of the 1930s’ and completes the tour of the valley with the part of information and education about the fauna and the flora of this excellent biotope.

The most important and interesting part of the museum is the hatchery, where a number of butterflies reproduce in a protected area, with stable climate conditions and ideal environment. Thus, the Museum not only does it give a museological view of the biotope, but it also contributes to informing the visitors on ecological topics, while at the same time is a good sample of eco-tourism, an alternative tourist development.
