The Fethiye Museum is very small but has some nice artifacts, a great coin collection, and a relaxing ruins garden to sit in the shade by the fountain. The price was only 5 TL and it takes only about an hour to walk through. Great for fans of Classical artifacts (Roman, Hellenistic) but has a few Iron Age and Late... More

The Museum is on Sokak 505 across the road from the dolmus station. The exhibits are all on one floor and contain finds from Tlos, Telmessos and Kaunos dating from about 3BC to the late Byzantine period. Everything is well displayed and all the notices are translated into English. The exhibits include Lycian pottery, jewellery, votive stones, coins, glass, ceramic,... More

Cooled off in here on an exceedingly hot day. I must admit but we like Museums anyway. Worth a visit. Quite difficult to find.

There are some wonderful old pieces and recent finds (from 2011 excavations). Pieces date from all of Fethiye's inhabitation. It's small so 1 hour is good enough.

Cheap to get in. Hidden away amongst schools and quite small inside. But they pack so many artifacts and so mych information we left very happy. Would recommend visiting after travelling to tlos or xanthos as many artifacts here have been extivated from these ancient sites. Worth a look

I was totally ignorant to Turkish history before visiting this museum. I honestly hadn't put much thought into the significance of Turkey's role in some quite significant parts of history, so I am very glad that I went to the museum as one of my first attractions in Fethiye. It is only a small museum, however there are some very... More

Fethiye Museum contains some outstanding archaeological artifacts from the area, including a fabulous tri-lingual stele from Letoon, which contains Lycian, Greek and Aramaic decrees which allowed the stele to be dated at 338 BC. A bi-lingual stele is also on display. Many lion sculptures are on display.

Very interesting place to visit with lots of information on various digs around this part of Turkey plus a pretty garden with artefacts, and an absolute bargain at 5 Turkish Lira
