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

Very disappointed that this museum is closed. So many of the relics of the region are in the collection. We had been looking forward to seeing all these works collected from other sites we visited. Alas

The Ephesus museum, not to be confused with the Ephesos ancient city in anyway, is closed for renovation. According to contacts in Selcuk, during my visit two weeks ago, the museum will open again within 6-12 months, but nobody seems to know for sure.

After touring the ruins in the area you might find this a relaxing break for lots of people and in our case soem of the heat. Really nice museum with restrooms and a place to get a snack or cold drink. Very interesting with lots of art from the past.

As a Christian Believer, Ephesus is an inspiring experience. This was my 3rd visit and I love imagining how it looked when it was a bustling city. Visiting the large amphitheatre and remembering Acts 19 is an incredible experience as well.
