The destination is actually the same as the castle - it's the actual exhibits at the castle. If you have visited large cities then they, of course, have more impressive exhibitions. But, still, the castle is worth a visit in it self.

Definitely put aside a couple of hours to explore this attraction. The museum is really interesting and the displays and artefacts and jewellery etc are of an extremely high quality and value. The signage and interpretation is adequate. Not really worth going down to the dungeon....especially if your not a fan of stairs..... But the rest is very worthwhile and... More

this is a great museum incorporated in to the castle of St Peter. one of the best underwater archaeological ones I have been too. The reconstructions of wrecks are particularly good. to top it off you get a great view of the coast and town from the battlements. Well worth the visit

The castle looks stunning from afar. Very well presented. Some rooms with air conditioning - very welcome in June as temperatures soaring well into the 30'c. Suggest take a bottle of water with you as you will need it. Be warned - plenty of steps and uneven walk ways. Photography is allowed in most areas, but you are likely to... More

Lovely to walk around and soak up the atmosphere of such an historical place. The castle is well preserved and laid out to stroll around.

The museum is great, really well laid out and lots of great exhibits. The audio guides add some extra info and overall the whole place is really informative. One thing to note is that alot of the exhibits close over lunch (12-1pm) so bare that in mind and the cafe onsite is pretty minimal so if you do go over... More

Visiting the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archeology you get to see two ways of life. First you get to see how the Knights of St John's lived and how the Castle was preserved and how it was used to so the underwater Arcehology museum was set up. all in all it is a great educational experience.

This museum is well presented and very interesting audio available at a small charge, it is well spread out with lots of steps not suitable for disabled however the artefacts and history was well worth the admission fee of 25 lira
