I am talking about the museum in the town of Selcuk, not the ruins of Ephesus (Efes). I was looking forward to seeing this museum, but the people at the visitor center told me that it would be quite a while before it was reopened. The outside looks fantastic, though.

Having been to Pompeii its not nearly as big but nevertheless gives you a good sense of how things were for the Romans in this area.

Visited ephesus, 20 years ago went back to see the Roman villas, well worth paying the extra to go in and see. Make sure you go in the morning it gets very hot

one of the best historical sites to visits in the world, make sure you don't miss the houses on the hill (under cover of glass and steel and still being excavated). magical but hot and dusty!

Without informing the public this museum turned out to be closed for at least another month. On the webpage it is said that the museum will open in August and now it is medio September.

This museum has a great collection of roman period sculptures and bas reliefs and is a worthwhile complement to a visit of Ephesus.
