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

Most tourists will not bother with the museum despite the fact that it is in the centre of Fethiye. There are so many historic sites in and around the town that if you want to explore are read up about places and their history, visiting the museum won't ad much to your experience. But it is good - and if... More

The Museum has been modernised with a great many new pieces. Though not large it has sufficient items to make it well worth a visit.

Although small this museum is full of varied artifacts inside and lots of carved stone items outside including its famous stone lions. Well worth the few lira entrance fee.

What a gem! History laid out before you in great displays with clear explanations. The museum was very easy to find on 55 street, and the entry fee was only 5TL each! It covers the history of the area through Lycian, Classical, Roman and Byzantine periods. To sit by the fountain in the garden, surrounded by artefacts was a refreshing... More
