Not massive but for a history geek it's well worth a visit. Only 10 lira entry. And it's air conditioned too

Lots to see and you can wander around the ruins all afternoon. A small fee to get into the museum and well worth paying to go in. Plenty of places nearby to eat and drink.

10 lira entry per person. This museum would be so much better if there was an explanation attached to each exhibit. Most exhibits have nothing (not even in Turkish). Beautiful shady garden. Although there is no cafe, there is s fridge of cold drinks to buy (1lira for water). The exhibits undercover make the museum worth visiting.

The standard of artefacts in the museum is very high but is let down a bit by presentation. More money invested could turn this into a really excellent museum. Very quiet when we visited in spite of large numbers visiting the amphitheatre just a few minutes away. Good value for money and a pleasant way to spend an hour

We visited Side in the evening only, wished we had done this earlier in our holiday, lots to see and do and would have been good to go in the day to see the history, Instead we visited the very large shopping street and saw lots of bars and restaurants, definite on to do list for a return visit when...
