It was only 10tl for the entrance fee and the place is so full of history, Nearly all the exhibits have explanations in various languages. Good place to spend an hour or 2.

you will not find this as a museum in Europe. Not fancy, just a lot of archeological artefacts displayed, with some 'comments' Don't expect five languages. This is a low budget museum, altough the entrance fee would make you expect more. Still: worth a visit

If you have time to see ancient city, it would be nice to visit this small museum. 30 minutes would be enough to spend. There should be more information about pieces. Entrance fee is 10 TL. Take a small souvenir from museum shop:)

I was moved to tears by the tiny stone coffins. And amazed by the stunning statues, tablets and stone carvings. My boys age 9 and 14 loved it too

The real thing is Antalya museum. There you can admire wonderful statues in almost perfect condition. If it hadn't been 80 km from the hotel, I would have visited that museum again.
