We spent about one hour here and while the items on display are of course impressive reminders of long bygone eras, we concluded we would also have survived without visiting the museum. What I found most helpful is a video at the beginning that gives an overview of the city of Ephesus, the surroundings and its history. The two Artemis... More

I especially loved the new findings from the terrace houses, the display of historical timelines of the city of Ephesus and it's terrace houses, and also the display of coins of all the different eras and empires was very interesting, so was the jewellery, glassware and medical equipments. And of course here you can admire the impressive statues of the... More

A small but wonderfully presented collection of some of the best discoveries from the Temple of Artemis site. The stand out displays are of the 2 magnificent Artemis statues - personally, I was more impressed with these than the actual city - but the whole collection is interesting and not at all 'stuffy'.

An exquisite, small museum with many lovely pieces. Most of the artifacts from Ephesus are, sadly, in other countries. However this is very worth seeing.

A short video available in various languages provides a wonderful look at what the ancient biblical city of Ephesus would have looked like in her prime. Statues, coins, and other archeological finds are all on display in this air conditioned museum.

Very interesting display and a small enough museum to see everything. Buy the combo ticket. The statue of Artemis is amazing.

On the beginning I thought that is boring all museum, but coming further and further I was surprising by every step. Selcuk is not a first destination for tourist, but worth to step there.

My husband and I enjoyed walking through the museum after walking through Ephesus. Seeing all the personal pieces on display from everyday life. The exhibits were very interesting capturing life and beliefs. A must see to wrap up the day.

In Ephesus itself you may notice that there are none ancient artifacts such as jewellery and pieces from everyday life too see. It's because all that has been moved a couple of kilometres away into the museum in Selcuk city. The museum is worth the visit but I would say there were too little information given about each of the... More
