It was a long hot walk not well sign posted which made it a challenge with a 6 year old. However it was very interesting but not big. There are no restaurants near by so have lunch before or plan better than we did. Could have more information displayed.

We spent ages trying to find this place after our visit to the castle. It is in a back street of Bodrum and i would reccomend getting a taxi if you are unfamiliar with the area. This is one of the seven wonders of the world apparently so its worth seeing.

We went. It was fun to check out on our walk up the hill. Interesting little site. The best part was finding that access to the underground drainage tunnels is still open (look in the sw corner for a small opening - crawl in to find access). That turned a 6/10 visit into a 10/10. Not for the squeamish.

not much to see here at all I'm afraid, the museum exhibit is small but fairly executed, but the remains are in very poor repair. (well they are old.)

We bought combined ticket for St.Peter's castle and Mausoleum for 30 TL. There are a lot of stones, with no preserved buildings, and you can see a hole in the ground which was sometimes a tomb. A very nice small museum is near the entrance and you can hear and see useful historical information about history of Halicarnasus and Bodrum.

This is one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. If you are in Bodrum you should go along and see, it is a very short walk from the marina. In truth much of the building itself is in the British museum, but pop along spend 30 mins to an hour read and learn. There's not much hype, not... More

Take time to watch the video in the small museum room at the entrance to give context and perspective. Buy the combined ticket for 30 TL with Castle (15 minute walk). Walk perimeter and go down below. In summer, go early to beat the heat--maybe before breakfast since it opens at 8 a.m. Unfortunately, crusaders removed much of original stone... More

Yes, there's not much left standing but for 10TL you get to see visit one of the seven wonders of the ancient world! It's right in the centre of Bodrum so not far out of the way and the model reconstructions will give you a good understanding of how amazing this must have looked when standing.

It costs 10 TL to visit; honestly, save your money. There is little more to see than what you see in the pictures. Unless you're really interested in knowing how the mausoleum was drained by the well documented drainage system.
