With ticket costing only 10 lira / person, you will have lots and lots different kinds of artifacts to see. There was also some kinds of birds running free in the backyard. Museum itself was restored roman bath so it was really worth to see. We enjoyed a lot.

It was very interesting to see all the artefacts that have been discovered in Side. Especially the statue of the roman victory godess Nike is very beautiful. And for the bird interested there is a georgeous peacock in the backyard.

This small museum of artefacts is well worth a visit, particularly after wandering the ruins in the local area. It has a great collection of Roman sculptures.
