The Stamatiadis Mineralogy and Paleontology Museum is the first of its kind, both in Rhodes and within the greater area of the Dodecanese. One of the main ideas governing the launching and hosting of this Museum has been the desire to extend the mineralogical and paleontological experience way beyond the strict field of acquaintance with specific areas traditionally yielding minerals as well as harboring fossils.
