It might be the only decent cultural thing worth seeing in Bodrum, but it is very well worth it. The museum is absolutely fantastic (read National Geographic, Dec 1987 issue, a bronze age shipwreck - if you want to know what it is about). The setting, the mediaeval Castle of the Knights of St.John, is the perfect place, well preserved and restored.

Maybe the oldest preserved wooden boat on show in the world? Maybe the kindest catloving people in the world?
The best fishrestaurants? I loved it.

This & the castle together are really worth a visit. The underwater archaelogical artifacts are amazing - totally unlike anything I've seen before & well presented to help the viewer understand the scope & importance of what they are seeing. The recreation of the shipwreck under water was fascinating. Pages of description could not replace the impact of actually seeing the hold of that ship. The architecture & history of the castle itself add to the atmosphere of the visit.

This museum, which shows us what life in the Mediterranean was like, is a must. Very centrally located, right by the Castle.

I loved the visit to the castle. It is a really interesting place, with peacocks walking around. The architechture of the castle is fascinating. It brings you back to other eras
