Excellent museum in a wonderful castle. Interesting, explanatory displays and reconstructions. Well labeled and well lit. Very informative museum, with pleasant grounds and gardens. Vast information about underwater archaeology, as well as some information on the castle itself.

This was the third port for our Cruise. After a nice leisurely walk from the ship, we proceeded to enter the Castle to soak in more history. Do not look for a separate location for the Museum of Underwater Archaeology because it is located within the different chambers and towers of the castle. The main attraction is the assortment of...

You should definitely check this place out if you're into historical remains and antiques. It offers a wide range of rare items that you can only catch in this Museum! My favorite room was the ship wreck.. it is a half a ship wrecked picked up from the ocean and situated right there in the middle of the room..

The story of the excavations is fascinating as it reveals the trade patterns of ancient times and is very educational. The whole castle is a pleasure to see even on a rainy day. There are audio-guides for rent and plenty of posted info to read. This is a must for anyone interested in history.

Not to be missed. Can easily spend a half day going around Bodrum Castle and the Underwater Archeology Museum. They are both in the same location - not be confused as I was!

This museum is the monumental symbol of the unity of Christian Europe. The... More

One of the best preserved castles on the aegean. It has a mix of history through 2500 years from the ancient Carians till today. Its closed on Mondays and the special towers with antiquities are closed between 12:00 and 13:00. During summer you better do it early in the morning. And you can combine it with Tuesday Market next to... More

At first the guide books almost make you think everything is underwater, it obviously isn't. But, creative lighting makes area look like they are submerged. It is a quick walk through and an amusing one at that. The museum is of underwater finds, so even if you it doesn't interest you, it is interesting to look at.
