Awesome rooms inside, and also outside areas to walk around. Allow around an hour and a half to two hours for your visit. Amazing detail in the sculptures and other exhibits. Really worthwhile.

Although Side is better known by its beautiful beaches, it is a wonderful site for archeology lovers,too. Do not miss the ancient city, the impressive theater building and environs. If you have limited time, try to visit the Museum.

This museum had wonderful historic pieces and my children (1, 7 and 11) thought it was interesting. It had air conditioning inside, was in a lovely position on the coast close to the ruins, and was the perfect size for the kids to wander through and look at stuff without getting bored.
