This is an excellent little museum with artifacts that come from the area (unlike the British Museum which preferred to steal and transport them It is an excellent companion to the ruins at Ephesus and gives it a context. Everything is displayed very well. So as you are racing onto Ephesus, spare a couple of hours for the museum

The collection has some delightful, well-lit displays. There is a video that rotates play through several languages, explaining quite well the historic development of Ephesus within the context of the Temple of Artemis and the silting of the bay.

Fantastic museum in Selcuk near to Ephesus. If you are in Kusadasi get a Dolmus near the Dabaklar hotel opposite side of the road on the corner. Really worth the journey.The Dolmus takes you to the bus station in Selcuk. From here look in the opposite direction to the bus station buildings. Cross over the road at the crossing head... More

Located a few kilometers from ancient Ephesus site this is a must see. and for summer visitors its air conditioned! Impressive statuary and artifacts from an entire c entry of the ancient world. Don't miss the statue of Artemis, friezes from the Temple of Hadrian and the head of Lysymacher. You need about 1 1/2 hours to do it well.

This was a great visit after the ruins. While we toured the ruins, our guide kept giving us history about the pieces in the museum...so when we went there (& were unable to locate a guide) we still had a lot of information. We loved the little gift shop at the entrance. And don't miss the storks nesting outside!

Having just visited this small, newly extended museum, we cannot rate it highly enough. Well worth visiting after seeing the fantastic Ephasus ruins to help put the exhibits into context.

This is a small but surprisingly nice museum. It is a great compliment to visiting Ephesus as it contains many artifacts from the site. The artistry of the objects is amazing as its the history. It helps illustrate life at Ephesus in a more complete way.
