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

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 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
