In 20 years of coming to this area Id never been to the museum so I thought it about time! I caught the dolmus from Hisaronu to the big mosque in Fethiye, and thinking I knew the general direction off I went. But couldn't see where it was. I asked some schoolgirls where it was and was very happy when... More

We had a bit of a problem finding the place, but it was worth finding. It's pretty small, nicely laid out and only cost 5TL, well worth the fee. It concentrates on ancient history, I wanted to see something about the more modern history of Fethiye, what happened before and after the earthquake; I'll have to look for that by... More

5TL entrance. Two rooms of artefacts and information plus outdoor area with stone carvings etc. Disappointed by size and breadth of exhibition but gives an insight into Lycian history and includes the Carian stone which is a key piece in understanding an ancient local dialect due to bilingual inscriptions. Helped us cool off on a blisteringly hot day.

For a small fee, I forget how much, you can enter the museum. It's main current attraction are the marble statues of Hadrian, Aphrodite & more, excavated at the ancient city Tlos. Take your time, read the information & discover that the ragged, dirty piece of cloth was part of an Emperors robes, dated 150 AD! The history of the... More

Before going to the museum I had read different reviews here on Tripadvisor . And I must say that I didn't regret;) the museum is rather small but with a very good collection of exhibits. Some of them were excavated not long ago. I liked the way everything was arranged there. Just a bit sorry that they didn't sell any... More

Found the museum quite easily (with good directions) although it could be a little more difficult without any. It is rather small with a cheap entry fee but has welcoming air conditioning. The artefacts were extremely interesting with English translation alongside theTurkish. Don't miss the gardens...quite something!

Visited this year after discovering last year. This little beauty is situated near a main mosque of Fethiye in the school district. A lot of money has gone into the facility and the quality of artifacts is amazing for a small museum like it is. Artifacts here are mostly from the ruin sites of Tlos, Xanthos and Letoon and I'd...

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.
