Great museum with some spectacular pieces

This museum is fantastic. There are numerous sculptures that are amazing. They are well presented and well lit. And you can go right up to them. Cost of entry is 10 TL.

Sorry for starting with that title, but I didn't enjoy too much during this visit. We came in winter time and pay the package of museum + Ephesus for 35TL. They museum closes at 5 pm in winter. It is a very small museum, 7 rooms as far as I remember. I can say that the most interesting part for... More

A must see when in Selcuk. Fantastic lighting, incredible artifacts, houses the best of the archeological objects excavated at Ephesus, some artifacts from Ephesus's great Temple of Artemis, and finds from some of the many other significant ancient Hellenic, Hellenistic and Roman cities in the region. It was an amazing view into the ancient world.

There are tons of artifacts here. I didn't realize the amount that has been excavated through the years--everything from tiny earrings and coins to large statues. Incredible History lesson!

The museum is in Selcuk and houses some impressive pieces from the excavations in Ephesus. While there are a number of very impressive artifacts on display, by far the most impressive are the statues of Artemis from the temple of Artemis. These are beautifully preserved and displayed and should not be missed.

A beautiful museum that helps provide a window on the cultural richness of Ephesus and the area. It houses beautiful sculptures, a fascinating coin collection, and a short film (ten minutes) provides a quick but effective introduction to the history of the city of Ephesus. Definitely worth a visit.

I could write all day on the glories of this venue and it would never do it justice. It took hours to walk through this city virtually left intact. They were still excavating apartments where dinner plates with grains and drinking glasses were left almost hermetically sealed to be discovered thousands of years later. This marble city could be an... More

A collection of much that was in the City, arrayed in a manner easy to see. Saved for posterity as sheltered from wind and rain. If you see Ephesus, you must see the museum also.

This is at the end of the ruins in Ephesus and there is light food and drinks available, but there is a long time without anything so take your water with you.
