The Museum of the Natural History of Bees

The people of the “Melissokomiki Dodekanisou” are people with love and passion for beekeeping. They have created the Museum of the Natural History of Bees. The museum can host groups or individuals, offering various exhibits concerning beekeeping from 200 years ago to nowadays. The exhibition includes:

    1. A presentation of old and modern beekeeping methods (e.g. handling beehives, a demonstration of the way honey is extracted, the production of wax, pollen, royal jelly, propolis etc.).
    2. Transparent beehives used for observation purposes, where one can safely study the bees’ way of living in their own “home”.

    4. A collection of the farmers’ and the beekeepers’ tools.
