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.

We miss exploring the place but from the lobby its worth seing the relics of the various landmarks of the area.

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!

This museum has some of the most amazing artifacts from the surrounding area on display. It excellently complements a visit to the ephesus ruins. At 10 tl it is well worth the price

We visited this great little museum the day it opened. It was pouring rain and we ducked in to take shelter. The museum is small, but filled with a broad inventory of intersting items, It was enough to keep everyone in our group engaged for an hour. All in all, an excellent supplement to our trip to Ephesus.

It's a mid sized museum that is about the only attraction within the town of selcuk. The highlight must be the multi-breasted Artemis statues that were the idols of Ephesus in antiquity. Compared to the archaeological museum in istanbul, the collection is way smaller and localized. The fee to enter is also much higher. For me, it was enough to... More
