Girl at the ticket booth said nothing to us because she was too busy on her mobile phone. Museum itself was set up beautifully. Well signed.

Good value for the entrance fee. Lots of Roman artefacts to look at and plenty of places to sit and look at the various things in the gardens. Inside the building was quite pleasantly cool and there was a good collection of objects on display.

Although only small the museum in Side is definitely worth a visit as it has a fascinating array of artefacts. It was only 10TL (about £3) per adult and our children aged 12 & 9 were allowed in free. The one thing they could do to improve it is have more information about what you are looking at, explaining more... More
