I visited this museum about 8 years ago and found it to be a good introduction to Efesus and the area. I just visited in July 2015 after the museum had undergone a renovation and found it to be an excellent upgrade. The exhibits are all fresh and well presented. Lots of timelines on the walls to understand the order... More

We visited the museum in mid June en route to Ephesus. It is a small museum, but clean, well-maintained and with quite a few interesting exhibits. However, given the breathtakingly long history of the region, it is a bit disappointing when one ponders of the possibilities. First off, the museum is a bit too small for all the exhibits, so...

This museum is small but there is really important and valuable museum. Our guide showed us many things in ancient city of Ephesus but if we did not visit this museum, our tour was incomplate. If you would like do a full Ephesus tour , you should visit this small but important museum.

there were interesting things in the museum, statuary taken from Ephesus, but it's not a museum with a large amount of work available.

Again an additional cost but breath taking. All the best bits are in here and not out in the open so well worth a visit. AC is a dream!

This is a small, well organized museum that is well worth the visit. Short summaries of objects were included that gave good details.

This museum takes around an hour, has a very impressive range of finds from the Ephesus archeological site and it is only 5TL if you combine this with the ruins. The world-famous statues of Artemis are hands-down the best part! As mentioned by other reviewers, there isn't too much information but I don't think it detracted from the experience. Worth... More

This has many fascinating exhibits, but there is very little information given about most. Very busy and acoustics are terrible. It has the potential to be great. Lots of tour guides but very hard to hear.

this place needs more attention and more time to visit time. I would love to come again and spend more time here.

Best bit was seeing actual status of Artemis - now I have something in common with King Croesus! Good info on gladiators and a few gory stories to turn the stomach too. A mighty relief to get into the air conditioning. Not the biggest museum I have ever visited!
