This museum is small. Very small. However, it is one of the best museums that I have ever visited! They have many classical statues and artifacts, that were found within ancient sites in the surrounding areas of Fethiye. I am currently studying Classics and this museum has helped me with my studies as they have many original statues and amphora... More

Although I found it difficult to locate, it was well-worth finding Apart from the much appreciated air-conditioning, it contains the history of the area, which has always had significant strategic importance and therefore the range of artefacts is very impressive, although some are unlabelled.

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
