A wonderful museum which is very reasonably priced and a must to bring Ephesus together. It is full of ancient artifacts form the area and is a must especially if you have toured the ruins.

Impressive, as all museums are! Providing pieces from Ephesus specifically keeps it closer to home and allow the patron to get an even more special feel of what transpired all those years ago!

This museum has some of the most amazing artifacts from the surrounding area on display. It excellently complements a visit to the ephesus ruins. At 10 tl it is well worth the price

We visited this great little museum the day it opened. It was pouring rain and we ducked in to take shelter. The museum is small, but filled with a broad inventory of intersting items, It was enough to keep everyone in our group engaged for an hour. All in all, an excellent supplement to our trip to Ephesus.

It's a mid sized museum that is about the only attraction within the town of selcuk. The highlight must be the multi-breasted Artemis statues that were the idols of Ephesus in antiquity. Compared to the archaeological museum in istanbul, the collection is way smaller and localized. The fee to enter is also much higher. For me, it was enough to... More

Stay to see the 10 minute video until it comes around in you language - runs in a loop between Turkish, German and English, although the German version has the most information. Puts your Ephesus visit into perspective. Statues and artifacts nicely presented. Museum was much better than I expected. Only downside is there was no seating in the video... More

According to the owner of Boomerang it is not open for the last two years; Nobody told us at Efesos, could have saved us a long ride. On the positive side we then visited the St Johns cathedral and the fortress, both well worth a visit. It remains a shame that the beautiful collection is for such a long time... More
