The museum is new and has an excellent collection of antiquities. It was useful to go after we visited Ephesus.

If you're going to Ephesus and staying in Selcuk, this is a good thing to do while you're in Selcuk. Especially recommended if you plan to see the terrace houses as many of the items on display were pulled from these homes. I'm glad I went.

Go to Ephesus first. Then hit the museum for an hour. You will not regret it. The displays are excellent. Lots of artifacts and sculptures. The museum is convenient and affordable

This is a very good place to go AFTER visiting the Ephesus Ruins. There are many statues, displays and explanations. Great gift shop with lower prices than similar museums in Istanbul.

We could easily have spent 3 hours here. There was much to see and read. The recently re-oped museum turned out to be the ideal place to get out of the rain.

If you have a chance to visit the Ephesus Museum BEFORE you tour Ephesus, do it! It is an extremely well done museum that takes you through the History of this part of the world. From the museum you are a short walk away to the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist...well worth it, if anything for the views.

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!
