Recently renovated, the museum is very nicely laid out. We enjoyed a ten-minute video in English at the beginning which helped us better appreciate the city of Ephesus. In the Museum there are some very nice finds which continue to amaze us. It can be viewed comfortably in about an hour.

A nice museum, Allocate about an hour to walk through it comfortably. There's a 15 minute video in English and German which explains the rise and fall of Ephesus. It's very helpful in wrapping your head around all of tis

The Ephesus Museum is a must-see kind of afterparty for when you have visited Ephesus. Beautiful stuff, not very big but still impressive.

t is air conditioned and truly a very modern museum. It was very interesting and well-designed. One of the best museums in Turkey and if you go in around lunch time, it is not crowded at all. The treasury in the museum was very well presented and organised. Everything was in place and there were brief explanations which i enjoyed... More

The Ephesus Museum is full of wonderful artic cats that have been found along the way, dating back to BC and early AD. It is great to visit after going to Ephesus, or as a taster (and its air conditioned!)

Whilst Ephesus City exhibits the structures, this museum exhibits the priceless statutes, sculptures and pottery, coins etc. Well worth the gate fee.

Don't miss this, as we did in 2014 when it was still under renovation. The statues housed here are not to be missed, to complete the details framed by a visit to the ancient city itself.

Quite a few statues with a good video show. Gives additional understanding of what the civilization was like. Good quality of presentation

I came here before I visited Ephesus. It's best to be here to cool yourself from the hot air outside. Don't miss the film near the enterance which helps me to grasp the picture of the old Ephesus.
