We had been there before many years ago but still wanted to climb up to the walls and see the city. There are 4-5 different rooms with sculptures, coins, amforas etc but not that much for 8 liras per person. A veryvery ancient looking grandmum is guarding the steps towards the castle museum and trying to sell souveniers, so be... More

Marmaris museum (or Marmaris Castle as it is also known) was a nice way to spend an hour or two. Reasonably priced. Can't remember exact cost but it was less than 30 Turkish Lira for 3 adults (which is less than £10.00). It has beautiful views over the harbour and some interesting artefacts displayed in several rooms within the castle.... More

Some of the best views of the harbour and marina can be taken from the castle walls and there are rooms showing the history of the region dotted around the castle. Watch out for the sweet old lady and her daughter selling trinkets just at the entrance to the castle she is just too good at selling you things you... More

Visited while on holiday in Marmaris with my boyfriend. Beautiful caste with amazing views. Though as others have mentioned, the steps to reach the caste are steep - not the easiest, especially in the heat. Worth the 8 Turkish Lira purely for the views, but don't expect too much from the 'museum' parts. There are just a few small exhibitions... More

Stunning castle and you can get some really good views from the walls. Some lovely historical pots and items on display in it too. Felt a very happy place. When we went there was a family of turtles living on the grass in the middle of the castle. This was a lovely surprise for us to see and made the... More

Good value - very interesting. Watch the kids though - health and safety is secondary out there. It's a long drop from the battlements
