This small museum has some beautiful statues and sarcophagus as well as a selection of pots and Roman coins etc. The air-conditioning was a welcomed surprise and so although it's open from 8.00 until 18.45, we'd recommend visiting during the hottest part of the day in order to get some relief from the sun! There is also a lovely small... More

If you enjoy looking at any architecture or antiquities, you certainly mustn't miss this great little museum. Full of artifacts discovered in the locality -some huge, others tiny. It's not the biggest or the best I've visited. but certainly not a disappointment, and the entrance price is very reasonable.

Didn't cost a lot to get in... not a huge amount to see but still reasonably interesting. Worth a visit but don't be disappointed if you don't go.

We loved the museum, it is quite small but there's a lot squeezed in to the space. A nice outside area to sit quietly and take everything in, has a lovely view out to the harbour. The exhibits inside the museum are very well preserved and of a good quality. The gift shop is decent and the toilets are very... More

A little museum, 10tl to get in. We spent about an hour here and it was very interesting. All the historical sites are close together in this little enclave so it is a great afternoon's experience.

For the 10 lira we paid I expected more. They should have combined the ticket with the castle. The museum itself was good but there was nothing else there except a very small gift shop

Although small this museum is worth the 10 Turkish Lira entrance fee. It combines sculptures and artefacts from through the ages, displayed both in the grounds and in the old chapel. You can take a pleasant stroll through the grounds and see the peacocks wandering around.

The antique area is great. You have the ruin of a villa, amphitheatre and temple of Apollo among other sections.
