Like strolling around a very pleasant park with really, really rare statues. The indoor exhibits are daunting in their variety.

The other side of the amphitheatre as you enter town through the arch. Many old statues and artifacts recovered during excavations. Good value

Not a huge museum but many things to see to learn about the history of the Side. After visiting inside the building you can also see lots in the garden.

It was interesting to see all the historic "buildings". There is also nice shops next to the site to buy gifts.

Small, interesting museum, some beautiful items, and if you go there before the amphitheatre it would make visiting the latter more interesting I think.

We visited Side for two hours on a Monday tour. Unfortunately, all museums in Turkey are closed on Mondays. Judging by the size of the Museum building it is quite small inside.
