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

The museum holds pieces "rescued" from the ancient site and provides a good context for the peoples and history of the ancient city.

Wanted to see it but needed a break after doing other outdoor sites. Arrived at 4:55pm and it was closing. Seems early if yoh considwr that most people interestwd in this place will often go to Ephesus city first to look around and might not make it right away to th museum.

Many of the sculptures and artifacts from the city are kept here so it's well worth the time to check out. The museum doesn't take too long to explore, maybe an hour or two depending upon how in-depth you want to look at the artifacts, but there are some fascinating pieces, especially the statues from the Temple of Artemis.

So many interesting and informative knowledge about Ephesus Antic city's behinds was really amazing. You should go there and see and understand how civilized history has been gone through at this part of the world... While there were 300.000 citizen with 30.000 people theater had been builded at the city...!

This museum with relics from all over Selcuk which includes Ephesus, Artemis temple and other is well worth a visit. There are statues of the mother goddess, Cybele, and also naught statues similar to those popular in Greece. There is also a statue of a man who is forever in pain.

The museum is about a few miles away from the ancient city ruins. It exhibits all the related background documents, art pieces and anything from the ruin site but too precious to be exposed to weather in the ruin site. You always can ask the taxi drive to drive you there and wait for you in the parking lot. Just... More

The indoor museum houses incredible and well preserved finds not available for viewing at the outside exhibit. I'd definitely recommend this as icing on the cake.
