“great museum, rude pushy shop staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

the museum was clear and well laid out and lit. The museum shop was full of expensive items with non-smiling staff, who kept asking if they could 'help', standing very close, whenever you simply looked at anything! The on making a small purchase they had no change but offered more items to make the purchase up to more cash!

Very nice museum, especially statues of Eros excellent.Statue of the goddess artemis is amazing ..If you're going to travel to Istambul, i have advice for you...The Museum Pass İstanbul costs 72 TL and is valid for 72 hours, beginning with your first museum visit.With this card, you will be able to visit the historical and cultural treasures of İstanbul, free of charge and without having to queue.normally. You have to pay average of 30 TL. for each museum entrance ..You can enter all the museums for free on this card for 3 days, very attractive...

“An excellent museum which should be visited alongside the ancient city of Ephesus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Having visited the ancient city of Ephesus we felt it essential to visit this museum to view finds, etc from the Ephesus site. The museum is excellent and the exhibits well displayed with good written commentary. It seemed to put the icing on the cake to our visit to Ephesus. It's a short Dolmus (communal taxi) ride from Ephesus, Selcuk is a medium sized bustling town, the Saturday sreet market is fantastic. The bus station is in the town centre and the buses are frequent to nearby areas and reliable. Selcuk alone is worth a visit, especially on market day.

“Interesting follow-up to seeing Ephesus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Well labeled exhibits, fascinating artifacts, some of the best statuary from Ephesus is housed here. Go to Ephesus first so you have the whole perspective.

“a nice little capping off to a visit to Ephesus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

My girlfriend and I took in this museum after doing the tour of the ancient city of Ephesus and it was the perfect way to round off the day. It's a fairly small museum so it doesn't take too long to see everything but what they do have is certainly impressive. There are numerous examples of statuary, friezes, ceramics, coins and artefacts and I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in history.
