It's great to see the ruins but don't miss out on this really well done museum where they display many of the sculptures excavated from the ruins of Ephesus. We really appreciated that everything was in both Turkish and English so it was easy to tell what we were seeing. The Turks take great care of their ancient treasures, more... More

Really ace collection, the museum is not too large, a relief after the over the top scale of the Ephesus site, from which all theses top/rate and often surprisingly complete statues and reliefs come from. Everything is well displayed and labelled, the two statues of Artemis are the climax of the show and are simply breathtaking.

This museum is located near the Ephesus archeological site and it's a very small museum (I normally avoid museums- there is loads to see in so less time) and has well maintained statues in marble. Some remains from the Temple of Artemis are also on display here. This museum doesn't disappoint.

Museum is arranged in galleries displaying coins , pottery and artefacts and statues from Ephesus and the Terrace Houses. The pride of the exhibition are two statues of Artemis displayed in their own low lit room : they took my breath away with their great beauty .

Make sure you pop in here if you have the time. It contains some excellent artefacts from Ephesus and the area in general and it's really well laid out. Thoroughly recommend it.
