Really ace collection, the museum is not too large, a relief after the over the top scale of the Ephesus site, from which all theses top/rate and often surprisingly complete statues and reliefs come from. Everything is well displayed and labelled, the two statues of Artemis are the climax of the show and are simply breathtaking.

This museum is located near the Ephesus archeological site and it's a very small museum (I normally avoid museums- there is loads to see in so less time) and has well maintained statues in marble. Some remains from the Temple of Artemis are also on display here. This museum doesn't disappoint.

Museum is arranged in galleries displaying coins , pottery and artefacts and statues from Ephesus and the Terrace Houses. The pride of the exhibition are two statues of Artemis displayed in their own low lit room : they took my breath away with their great beauty .

Make sure you pop in here if you have the time. It contains some excellent artefacts from Ephesus and the area in general and it's really well laid out. Thoroughly recommend it.

This museum in Selcuk town has well displayed artefacts from Ephesus and the site of the Artemis Temple. A good film shows a reconstruction of Ephesus as it would have looked.

Frankly the museum is the cherry at the top of the cake of the visit of Ephesus. First there is a very interesting 10 minutes video that explain Ephesus, secondly there are the artefacts found in Ephesus that are wonderful: statues and jewellery and pottery. The museum really ties together the sight: you can place the statues in the place... More
