This newly renovated museum is wonderful. First take the time to watch the movie (in a circular series of Turkish, German or English) to get your bearings and more history of Ephesus. Then enjoy the great displays of treasures found there. I especially wanted to see the 2 versions of Artemis which have their own rooms. I just wish there... More

Wonderful tour and definitely worth a visit, but tough with small kids, prams, and if you go in the summer, no shade at all. Try to go early, and avoid 11am-2pm slot, as it's the hottest.

This holds many of the artefacts referred to on the Ephesus visit and has some genuine marvels of sculpture and stone work. Some of the tiny pieces would provide great inspiration for those making jewellery.

This small but accessible museum in Selçuk is worth a visit after seeing city of Ephesus. It is worth spending a little bit of time here to see some of the ancient pieces that have been taken from the city itself. Allow at least an hour if not more to take in the timelines that are on the wall.

5 minutes walk form the delightful Ayasoluk Hotel, my base in Secuk. I was very pleasantly surprised that the museum has recently re-opened in splendid premises and with excellently presented and lit displays. Some wonderful marble and limestone busts and statuary. The highlight has to be the amazing 2 marble statues of the goddess Artemis, displayed appropriately in their own... More

The Ephesus Museum offers a deeper insight into the life and times of Ephesus, with descriptions about architecture, life, money, and some of the famous people connected to the city. This is the "up close" version of a visit to the ruins. The museum is inexpensive, yet excellent in terms of diversity and quality (both linguistic (TR, UK, DE) and... More
