“A Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a great little museum in a lovely tree lined setting - we thought it was a little gem and definitely worth a peek.

“Interesting time out of the sun”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is an interesting half hour out of the sun. 10tl to gain entrance. The museum mainly has statues and other artefacts the detail is astonishing and freezes on some of the tomes give an insight into roman beliefs.
I also paid 10tl to go into the amphitheatre across the way, my advice is don't bother you can see everthing from the area In front.
You are better off wandering around this area looking at the buildings in the scrublands. This is worth a visit!

“Side Bath House Museum”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This museum is small, but intriguing because it’s built into the well preserved ruin of a Roman bath house. It’s entry fee is 10TL. Altho its size is small, its displays are impressive. The museum has many statues, sarcophagi, skeletons, and misc artifacts. The arrangements of them are beautiful and neat to see in more of a natural setting compared to the new modern buildings many Turkish museums are upgrading to. My favorite spot was outside in the museum’s courtyard. It’s a lovely display of artifacts placed around a grassy lawn, trees, and flowers. A peacock was there during our visit, it stood proudly by the roman statues with its bright contrast of feathers; just twirling in circles to show off his glorious color contrast against the white rock statues. Comically we saw a cat arise from its baby sarcophagi tomb which he had made for its home. From the back end of the garden you have a view of the Med and can see ships sail by. Just be careful not to step in the grass or garden areas, if you do you’ll receive a prompt whistle blow from a security guard. There are bathrooms located in the garden area and free to use. We parked on the North side of the museum where I’m not sure if it was legit. It looked like free open parking, but when we left a man ran out of a Chai hut and charged 5TL. South of the museum, driving through the arch, across from the entrance to Side Theater itself, is a legit parking area with advertised fees. Its minimal fee is 5TL for 1hr, but the rates go by hour. While we were there in the afternoon, there was only one other couple visiting the museum with us. I’m not sure if it’s always this slow but it was nice to get out from the other tourists of Side into the shade and AC of the museum for a lovely solo visit.
