small museum, but with a great amount of relics. so cool the items they have. Well presented with excellent signage in English. Short films are educational. The highlight is seeing the two wonderful statues of Artemis. Very nice gift shop as well.

Will excite you only if you are aware of the history. If you are pressed for time, may not be able to justice for 15-20 tl you pay!

We were let loose in the museum en route from Ephesus and found it extremely interesting and well laid out, very informative and full of carefully researched data and well preserved artifacts.

i visited this museum because suddenly raining and i can't go outdoor, but this museum surprisingly beautiful and informative. Better to visit this museum before visiting Efes/Efesus to learn about the history.

Good guide, small but informative museum, would recommend you visit it before you visit Ephasis itself . Nice cafe outside in the Garden.

We visited this museum as part of a tour to Ephesus. The museum was modern and well laid out. The museum holds some of the original pieces from Ephesus. We spent about an hour here which was just about the correct length of time.

The debate rages about whether to go to this museum before or after the Ancient city of Ephesus. I say it does not matter as long as you visit both. The museum does provide addition detail into the city and a good overview but it also gives great detail which can be missed in the city itself. Some of the... More

I am glad I visited this after the walk through Ephesus. It made the ruins more believable and added the human touch without the crowds. The videos of how Ephesus grew and declined were fascinating

Would definitely go here before the Ephesus site, put everything in perspective. No one else here so had plenty of time to read all the signage, just wish the staff would stop talking so loudly!

Comparing to the scale of the Ephesus site, this museum can be considered small. But the amount of exhibit there, especially in relation to the Ephesus, is quite sizeable. It is well organised into sections and sub-sections too. I particularly enjoyed the coin section most. A good mid-day break from the searing temperatures out there.
