Hard to find even with a map as the streets dont seem to have signs on them, worth a visit if you can find it but disappointing that neither staff on duty spoke or understood a word of English.

This is an unprepossessing museum and quite well hidden away. The museum itself is small and took us less than 45 minutes to cover but does have some incredible artifacts in it.

Fethiye has a very small (two rooms, plus quite a number of stone artifacts in the gardens) museum highlighting the history of Lycia from early (Bronze age) times through to the Ottoman period. Exhibits are from random finds and from various archeological digs at Tlos, Canaus, and other Lycian sites. Most of the larger stone items (statuary, sarcophagi, etc) are... More

C1 ( 2013.08.19 ) There was small museum in Fethiye. I like museum in city museum, so I visited there. Museum size was small but many exhibits was displayed inside and outside. Because of small size, some poeple disappointed, but I satisfied this museum.

True finding the museum is a challenge - but the good news about that is that it is not crowded. Find it and it is then worth the trouble, although small it has interesting artifacts going back to 3000BC. One of the real bargain at just 5 TL.

Fethiye Museum is small having only 2 rooms plus statues outside, but it is full of fascinating objects, going back to 3,000 BCE. They are all beautifully displayed and there is ample explanation. We learned a lot about the history of the area from the earliest times then through Greek and Roman civilizations. It is a must-see if you are... More

So difficult to find that even local traffic wardens didn't know where it was which was disappointing as would have been great to visit. More signage needed!

Having been to Tlos and Patara, as well as to other ruins on previous visits, it was brilliant to be able to see for ourselves many of the finds, including some larger than life size statues that were discovered at Tlos. As well as the pots, jewellery, etc inside, there are many larger exhibits in the garden. It would be... More
