Do not miss this really interesting small museum. There are a range of displays of relics, coins, jewelry, sarcophagus, skeletons, statuary in a lovely sea view location. Exhibition rooms are air conditioned and there is a cafe, shop and seating in the gardens. Entrance is only 10 lire.

we visited all of the above, they are breath taking and the museum is brilliant. There is a charge for the museum and ampitheatre, but it is minimal and well worth it

An expansive collection of local finds that give depth to the wider sites, both paid for and free, that surround the old town of Side.

Quite small museum, but nevertheless worth a visit, if not for anything else then the aircondition! It is placed in a roman bath house, so that in its self is cool. It has coins, pottery, jewels sculptures and sarcophaguses. And toilets!!!

Side is rich in historical ruins from ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine times. Many of them can be found in the Side museum, whether they are old sarcophagi, jewelery, warrior weapons or old coins. The museum is rich with artifacts from 2 century AD and entering in it is very cheap - about 3 euros.

We were surprised to see all of the amazing ruins that you could actually touch beautiful harbour too, but be careful of restaurants keep to the menu they will try and tempt you to have fish or seafood it works out very expensive
