I was "monumented out" by the time we left Ephesus. There is just so much to see...and only 25% excavated. The sheer size of the roman city is staggering and the terrain makes it hard to envisage. A great museum though. Saddest thing is the quality of restoration being undertaken currently looks poor.

The museum is closed and it seems to be closed for a long time, considering how the construction site currently looks like.

This museum was included in the tour and my expectations were not high. I was wrong. It is very good and worth visiting.

Whether you're exploring the undercover museum with excavated buildings, floor mosaics and wall paintings, or just wandering down the main road past extraodinary ruins, this is a wonderful archelogical site.

We visited this museum after touring the city of Ephesus and we felt that it completed the whole experience. Just like visiting the Archaeological Museum in Naples after touring the ruins of Pompeii, this museum gave a real personal feel to the ruins that we had just visited. We were in a small group of 15, and we were the... More

This place was unbelievable! We decided to hire a guide to explain the ruins along the way. The info was overwhelming, considering how old the place was. The weather was perfect in October, perfect for walking. Wear comfortable shoes.

This museum is modern and has a terrific series of galleries with very well described artifacts. You could easily spend an hour here as it is very well organized and the displays have very good explanations to accompany them.

The Museum was closed when we visited which was a pity, but the Site itself was truly awesome. We loved it. We were blown away by the size and extent of the ruins. They are really worth a visit if you are that way of the World.

This museum, just near the Tourist Information Centre at Selcuk, is closed while an entirely new complex is being built. The TI said it would reopen next year, 2014, but looking at the size of the hole in the ground where the previous museum was and the state of the foundations for the new one I would suggest 2015 a...
