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.

This is an exceptional museum (we toured it two years ago), but it is closed for renovation, and has been for the past year+ and for some reason, that information is no where to be found!

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.

Tried to visit this museum recently as thought was essential to have a proper insight into Ephesus, but closed for refurbishment. Surely they could have done his stage by stage so key exhibits were available.

We saw this before it was closed and it was well worth the effort. We saw this BEFORE the Ephesus tour of the old city, so we had an overview of the history and importance of the city. We thought the exhibits were well down and quite interesting!
