The area around Bodrum has had many ships sunk over the last 3000 years -- yes three thousand years!! They have now started excavating these ships and they are being displayed in this museum. A very interesting visit.

This museum is part of St. Peter's Castle. Shows many ruins that were found at sea and it is very interesting. All the rooms have many artifacts and lots of history. It's worth a visit especially if you are very into history.

Good collection of ancient stuff. Ruins very pretty and well restored. Great sights from castle. Worth a visit although maybe a bit expensive.. But for a good cause.

I had the impression that we were going to see things underwater but the museum is about archeology underwater. Lots if interesting things but not what we had in mind.

This is at the castle, and houses lots of artifacts gathered up from the sea bed over the last 40 years or so. You get a sense of an immense history here. Well worth it. Allow at least two hours if you want to take it all in and enjoy the views.

By the photos I thought that it was a big museum with underwater exhibitions. Nothing special except the byzantine findings

I really enjoyed spending the day at the Museum/Castle. Quite fascinating. There is a lot of different rooms/exhibits to cover and easy to spend the whole day as there are a couple of cafes inside where you can take a break. One thing to be aware of is that some of the smaller rooms close for lunch so best that... More

if you love this kind of exhibitions, go to see it. My father used to built ships and boats, it was very special for me. Reserve enough time, if you like to feel in a different dimension :)

A nice place to escape from the hustle and bustle around the marina during the day to enjoy some ancient archeological finds of old turkish culture.
