About
Ephesos, located in present-day Turkey, was one of the most important cities of antiquity. It was here that the Artemis Temple, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, stood; the city was also the home of Heraclitus, as well as of one of the largest early-Christian communities. Roman times saw Ephesos became capital of the Province of Asia, with around 200,000 inhabitants. Since 1895, Austrian archaeologists have been excavating the ruins of Ephesos. Up to the year 1906, numerous recovered objects of high quality were removed to Vienna, objects which can be seen today at the Ephesos Museum, an annex to the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

It’s been many years since I’ve been to Turkey to see Ephesus. I enjoyed that trip, so I wanted to come to this museum. What a great experience! This museum exhibits some of the fascinating finds of the ancient Greek site. The great Greco-Roman frieze has been arranged into what it might have looked like in ancient times and looks amazing. There’s also a platform where you can see the frieze from higher up and see it in its entirety. Don’t miss the sculptures “The Sphinx Devouring a Boy” and “Athlete from Ephesus”! Upstairs there’s a small collection of frieze and stone work and pretty polychrome marble pillars.

The museum is not actually all that big, but the focus is on high quality exhibits. I’m interested in classics, so it took me over an hour to get through everything.

The entrance ticket to this museum also gets you into House of Austrian History museum, which is also fantastic. Both these museums are in the same building!

Excellent, with good interpretation. It's not a huge collection, but historically so important and interesting, and some of the exhibits are spectacular. It's definitely on my "must do" list for Vienna museums.

Fascinating museums that is part of the Neue Burg Museums. With a ticket you get access to three museums and they are all worth it. Lots of ancient artifacts.

We spent 15 Euros to get to museum to find out it has been closed for renovation. We expect more from TripAdvisor. We usually have good luck using the app for information.

I'm very keen on archaeological museum from the Ancient World, and I like the Ephesos museum much. It might not be too big, but steel thee are a lot of finds - sculptures mainly, but also freezes, column and the like. For archaeology lovers this museum is a must (or a visit to Ephesus in Turkey instead). The museum is pat of the KHM (Kunst Historisches Museum) and there is one ticket for both places. The focal artefacts in the museum are said to be the following: the Parthian Monument, the Amazon from the Altar of the Artemision, the bronze Athlete statue and the Child with a Goose.

This is a large collection of ancient Greek artefacts which are displayed beautifully. An audio guide comes with the purchase of the entrance ticket and gives a good explanation of the pieces. The building in which the museum is housed is also stunning. Highly recommended.

The Ephesus Museum is in the Neue Burg and is part of the Kunthisto... museum. For us was really interesting to visit this museum as only 4 months ago we were in Ephesus so we could see all the missing pieces! Austrian archaeologists were the one that start digging Ephesus (and are still involved) so there is quite a lot in this museum (a little bit the same of Pergamon and the same name museum in Berlin).

The Neue Burg today hosts three museums. The most interesting in my opinion is the Ephesos Museum which includes excavations and antiquities from Ephesus in Turkey. The other, the Sammlug Alter Musik Instrumente and the Collection of Arms and Armour are smaller museums but admission to all three also includes entry to the Kunsthistorisches Museum across the road.
I think the museum is managed by the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and was established when collections from various places were gathered here. Outside of London and Ephesus, this would be the next best display of Ephesus archaeological findings.
Ephesus is of course a pretty important city in Ancient Greece. The city on the Aegean coast was once a major capital of Asia Minor. It’s home to the Temple of Artemis and its wealth is on display at the museum inside a section of the Neue Burg.

This is a museum which is part of a trio of museums covered on the one ticket. It has some nice pieces and is housed in a magnificent building. As I was at Ephesus in October, it wasn't as good for me as it could have been.

Small but interesting archaeological museum with things found near the Turkish city of Ephesus. If you expect something like the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, you will be disappointed.
