  • Nice historical place from category "you must see it". It is quite important to arrive early morning to have " as less as possible visitors". Only in this moment you will make best pictures from the places. Whole area takes really time to be discovered. Some of the place are amazing and touch of old times is there. Others looks look like " pile of stones ". But is you look carefully you will discover very interesting details. ENJOY THE PLACE !!

  • This museum houses a large collection of art works excavated from the ruins of Ephesus early in the twentieth century. Housed in an attractive modern gallery, many of the works are stunning. A small-scale ivory frieze of people and animals, probably placed on a mantel, is exquisite. Numerous gold pieces of jewelry and several gold tiaras were also strikingly refined--not big or clunky like much ancient jewelry, but thin, refined and understated. I was reminded of the museum at Corinth by this museum, though presentation of the pieces is more strikingly done here. I debated whether to go to the museum as well after a day at Ephesus. We're glad we did.

  • Leave the bottom car park and turn right to Selcuk - 2 kilometres. At the T junction/ roundabout return on yourself and immediately turn right into the museum car park. The sign posting is poor. This is a new, modern, museum specifically for some of the finds from Ephesus. Unfortunately some of the best pieces ended up in museums in Britain and Germany. There is disabled access. Well worth seeing.

  • Paid 40 TL for this. Worth every penny. The place is huge and full of history. Better to go when it's not scorching hot or it will be a tiring walk. Try singing at the theatre and climb up to get the view of the whole theatre and the mountains behind it. And the forget the gorgeous library. Better to go early in the morning to avoid the crowd too.

  • One of the most beautiful historical sites in the world. If you have a museum card it is free to enter, otherwise it is around d $10 per person. You can easily spend 2-3 hours, going around in this historic site and won't be able to see everything. The excavation is still going, and new sites are uncovered on a regular basis. It is a must to see.
