This museum is definetely worth seeing. As you may notice there are alot off artifacts and statues in the outer garden and entrance of the museum. There are alot of things to see inside as well. You can sit in the garden and enjoy looking around just from where you sit. It is not often that you can see soooo... More

Beautifully presented, in English and Turkish. Well worth the few lira charged. Quality pieces from antiquity. Rounds out a Pergamom visit nicely.

If you are not too drained physically after seeing the Acropolis and the Asclepeion, do pay a visit to this small museum. It contains beautiful marble sculptures and reliefs from the Acropolis, dating back to Hellenistic and Roman times. There are remarkably good description labels.

This is a small beautifully laid out museum. Some of the prime pieces from the Asklepion and Acropolis are here. This is an ideal place to visit after you have been to these two major sites. There is a separate section dedicated to local ethnography. When entering this section of the museum don't be put off by the fact that... More

This museum houses a number of statues from the Acropolis of Pergamon and from The Asklepion. Notably the statue of Hadrian. There are also some interesting relics relating to Galen, the great Roman Physician who lived locally.

The bulk of the holdings are things found in the Pergamum excavations that did not get carted off to Berlin by the Germans. There are a number of excellent architectural members with carved reliefs, inscriptions (many translated), a large well-presented sculpture gallery with excellent pieces, lots of other large sculptures including carved table legs with figures, cases full of pottery...

This is a small but very impressive museum. It has 2 parts: one for archeology and the other one for etnography. I recommend you visit the museum after you have visited the Pergamon ruins as the displayed artefacts will be more meaningful this way. There are no audio tours available but the display explanations are both in Turkish and English... More

This was our first visit to the museum, which we have passed time and time again - and we suddenly realised what we had been missing. Lots of statutory from Pergamon but also smaller finds from the Aescaplion and other local sites are to be found as well!

The Museum is a small gem. The displays are well done and really help illustrate the site but what is special is the detail of the sculptures, the flowing stone cloth and folds and a sense of the daily lives of people. A very fine little museum
