The mausoleum really doesn't have much to see other than a bunch of ruins lying around. With that being said, there are some frescoes that have been preserved, and just imagining what it was like when it was there makes it worth the visit.

Just the foundations really. Video gave history of bodrun but not of the building itself. Displays did not enlighten much.

Even this ones was one of the Seven Wonders of the World, its now almost totally ruins. Only a bottom floor and some small parts and details have survived. Still, it’s worth of visiting. After that you can say that you have seen one of the Seven Wonders of the World and even there are not so much left, its... More

I liked the history (it was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world) associated with this site, and some of the marble reliefs on display.

If you want to visit this site make sure you have a map because there are no signs anywhere. It is one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world so worth a visit just for that, although there isn't much there.

An incredible site, so overwhelming to be in the foundation and touching shards of one of the seven wonders of the world.

We went after visiting the castle. Entrance is 10tl or you can get a duo ticket for castle and mausoleum for 30tl saving 5tl. It's a little tucked away but not a long walk from the harbour. If you walk from the castle take the side street on the right opposite the mosque walk to the top of the street... More

Well, there isn't much to see other than ruines but as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world its definitely should be visited if in Bodrum. Not overly easy to find as its in the old town down an unassuming street.

Initially thought it was only a wall of the old mausoleum but there's a lot more to it. Easy walk from waterfront.
