See the treasures of Ephesus and other artifacts.

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.

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.

This museum is small and takes about 2 hours to cover. It holds the best stuff from the city and should be seen after Ephesus. We loved it. You can take a dolmus from Kusadasi for 6 lira.

I would highly suggest everyone to visit the museum before taking the Ephesus guided tour. It provides the context and history. It is easy to walk through at your own pace and it is thankfully air-conditioned and modern,

Beautiful new museum with some truly amazing artefacts and very good explanation boards in English, and also very informative reconstruction videos of the city. Really interesting visit and well worth going before or after you visit Ephesus itself.

So often the best treasures have been removed to a national museum or worse were taken to other countries. Thankfully, they were able to preserve many of the treasures locally. This museum is a must see if you are visiting Ephesus. I was actually surprised that it contained as many excellent archaeological finds as it did.

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.
