“What a great history”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

You Must go there before going to Perge.
You then realise the fine arts there was in those ancient times.
the sculptures are amazing by the quality and their size.

“Small but mighty”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We were really blown away by this museum. While the 'meat' of the museum is their marble statues, sarcophagi, and friezes, there are also lovely dioramas of the Anatolian region and pre-historic artifacts. However, we were captivated by the statues, including the newly reunited Herakles statue. Visit Perga first if you can -- that will give you some context for the statues and really make this visit worthwhile.

“Not our favorite”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were underwhelmed by our visit to the museum. A lot of the initial exhibits are only described in Turkish and the marble sculptures were only mildly interesting (this may be because we had seen similar works on our trip to Italy).
