Situated not far from the dolmus station this small museum is well laid out with English signage so that you know what you are looking at. Only 5 TL entrance fee. There are some interesting exhibits, many Roman finds from nearby and a very good display of coins.

Museum is staffed by a Friendly Bunch! Collection is huge. And a comprehensive one shedding light on the Lycians, Greeks and Romans. If time is available and this interests you go and visit it. Entry fee is 5tlr Turkish lire just over a pound well worth the entry fee.

We have been visiting Fethiye for about 20 years but had never been to the museum. We decided to visit on a day when the weather wasn't so good for something to do. Had a bit of trouble finding it, but that may be because it's off a one-way street and the signposts are probably pointing towards the cars which... More

An amazing collection of well presented artefacts, some of which had only been discovered as recently as 2011. Very reasonable entry charge of 5 t/lira.

Although very small, it does contain some very interesting artefacts from the surrounding historical sites of Lycia and some information. Worth a visit if interested in the history of the area.

We went on a trip to Tlos to see the ancient site, accompanied by an amazingly enthusiastic guide. He explained how statues had been found intact under rubble at Tlos following an earthquake and also gave great insight into hoe the Dead we're buried with coins to "pay the Ferryman" and phials holding tears of mourners. Fascinated, we went to... More

Glad we popped in here on the way back from the tombs. Very poorly advertised with just one very small sign pointing the direction for it. Not expensive and very interesting with lots of artefacts and lots of information all in English or Turkish. Lights come on as you walk around so if it isn't busy there is no waste... More

beautifully set out and presented. It doesn't need very long, but it is very well worth going to see what is there

Descriptions of museum by others is accurate. The museum is tucked away in amongst some school buildings near the the harbour. I visited on a Tuesday morning, after an early morning trip to the market and had the place to myself. An oasis of tranquility. Plenty of information to read and the artefacts are beautifully presented. Well worth an hour... More

Take Ataturk Caddesi towards the Tuesday market. Go past the large mosque on Gaffar Okkan Caddesi and onto 505 Soka. The museum seems surrounded by schools. The museum is very small but there is information in Turkish and English about the different antiquities. There is also information about nearby areas where they were found. Don't skip the special pieces in... More
