  • Very interesting site. We were lucky to have a private guide which helped to understand the history but there were plenty of guides on site prepared to do this too  more »
  • This elegant museum is a must see prequel to the Ephesus site. The statues taken from the site and displayed at the museum are stunning. Do not miss this. Included in your museum pass if you have one.  more »

  • Definitely worth a visit. Inspiring history, old buildings and ruins. Unfortunately there is a lot of tourists visiting. If there wasn't that crowded it would get the last and 5. star
  • An absolute treasure trove for history buffs. A must see open place museum definitely worth the 40TL ticket per person. Just remember to have an umbrella, sunscreen and your sunglasses in summer or expect dehydration b scorching hot weather. This a nice place which gives you plenty of food for thought.
