Well worth a visit. We had not realised there would be so many antiquities displayed from Knidos. The information boards in both Turkish/English were excellent. It took us a good hour and we could have stayed longer. The old narrow streets enroute to the castle are a delight.

We loved our visit there, in awe of many things that we saw there. We were in great admiration and full of respect with all the exhibits there. Very interesting, well worth a visit

It would be easy to visit the holiday resort of Marmaris and do nothing cultural. Marmaris castle and the museum inside are small but and interesting way to spend an hour. The old town around the castle is very interesting and has some traditional restaurants.

The building is heavily restored, but nevertheless has great views from the ramparts over the harbour and the bay.. The Knidos room is very good - some nice sculpture and good explanations (in Turkish and English) of how Knidos traded in antiquity.

It is, what you can read from internet - small place in lovely old town. You can see history there and enjoy views to Marmaris. I liked it very much. The old lady who is grabbing your hand, was also there by the entrance, thanks for warning here, I avoiced her :)

The museum is quite small but quite cheap in terms of entrance fee and worth the money paid. Watch out for the old lady selling things outside of the entrance as she is quite persuasive!

Small but well planned and interesting museum with themed rooms, at a good price. The castle itself is relatively modern having been rebuilt following almost total destruction during the first (I think) world war. The displays cover different periods and local area history. The museum courtyard is like a garden with the palms and plants interspersed with ancient pots, sculptures... More

This castle / museum is quite small, but there is still quite a lot to see inside and the views from the castle walls are good. Price was okay, and I would consider it a couple of hours well spent.

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
