Visited ephesus, 20 years ago went back to see the Roman villas, well worth paying the extra to go in and see. Make sure you go in the morning it gets very hot

one of the best historical sites to visits in the world, make sure you don't miss the houses on the hill (under cover of glass and steel and still being excavated). magical but hot and dusty!

Without informing the public this museum turned out to be closed for at least another month. On the webpage it is said that the museum will open in August and now it is medio September.

The ancient city of Ephesus is the most amazing place I've ever seen, walking in the footsteps of Greeks and Romans the biggest amphitheatre I have ever seen it was breathtaking. We took a guided tour, which took about 2 hours, there is so much to see and so much history to soak up I would highly recommend it. It... More

This museum has a great collection of roman period sculptures and bas reliefs and is a worthwhile complement to a visit of Ephesus.

Very disappointed that this museum is closed. So many of the relics of the region are in the collection. We had been looking forward to seeing all these works collected from other sites we visited. Alas

The Ephesus museum, not to be confused with the Ephesos ancient city in anyway, is closed for renovation. According to contacts in Selcuk, during my visit two weeks ago, the museum will open again within 6-12 months, but nobody seems to know for sure.
