It's cool to see a "7th Wonder of the World" but there is really not to much to see. Pretty garden and some ruins that look more like rubble. History buffs might enjoy this. Not a "must see" in my book

I had been warned that there isn't much left of the original mausoleum so didn't have high expectations when visiting. However for anyone with an interest in the ancient world I still think it worth stopping over to see. The foundations and original burial chamber are open and one can imagine the scale of the building in its original form.... More

Would check it out, very nice. Kids may get a little bored however. Lots of things are stored in British Museum.

Unfortunately some stones have remained from one of the seven wonders of the world. This tomb has been built by queen Artemisia for his husband Mauseleus so that his name wil not be forgotten. As a result of many earthcakes and to be used in building St. Peter castle there has remained only the base.

Certainly worth a short visit. Since unfortunately whatever remained of the mausoleum was hauled off to the British Museum, you need a bit of imagination. Still highly recommended though.

What a fabulous place to visit for anyone who has studied Ancient History or who feels an affinity for antiquity. Now almost hidden amongst the houses of the old town it is well worth a visit and have a chance to marvel in how it must have looked more than 2,000 years ago. Incredible.
