Perhaps because I’d already been to Izmir’s Museum of History and Art, I found this place to be a letdown - same as when I last visited it 6 years ago. Was a bit taken aback by the admission fee of 12 TL. That’s twice...More

Did the day trip up from Marmaris which included this museum. Some wonderfull historical artifacts here. Its not a big place and can be walked round inside an hour. Cheap to get in as well.

Not well signed at all but if you walk up from Konak pier towards the tunnel you will see the ornate building in an elevated position . There are some superb exhibits including a stunning bronze running youth and a couple of fine mosaics ....More
