Although this museum is a bit old fashioned, the artifacts are displayed and good descriptions given in English. Nowhere else has the facilities to bring together some many fine examples from the different inhabitants, going back to 500 BC. It is a pity it is not more used by locals and visitors.

Small museum but with some interesting statues and other archaeological finds from the area. Doesn't take long to visit as it consists of two rooms but admission is cheap and the exhibits are interesting.

As this was the fourth time that we had visited Fethiye we decided it was time to find out about it's history. We found the museum quite easily and paid a small entrance fee. There were two rooms with items to view and a garden. It was interesting to see the link between ancient Rome, Greece and Turkey. There was... More

But worth it. A small, but none the less very interesting museum with artefacts from the local area. A lovely outside space too.

This compact museum all on ground floor has an amazing number of artifacts both large and small for its size - inside and outside. Sadly - although the items are very well documented and described - these are only in Turkish so take a bilingual friend with you to get maximum benefit. Even so it is well worth a visit... More

This small museum (two rooms) is located on the side streets of Fethiye and it isn't the easiest of places to find (as there are no brown signs to it - just small yellow signs as you get close which say 'muze'). There is free on road parking directly outside of the museum if you are travelling by car. The... More

A small but well presented collection of artefacts discovered like locally. Some from nearby Tlos which continues to be excavated. No literature is available to explain the exhibits but the displays are labelled in various languages including English. Don't forget to visit the garden area where there are several interesting archeological remains. Unfortunately these are not labelled
