I was here twice, this time with my sister and her husband. It's amazing to see that the government is taking care of this place. What they are doing with restoring those old houses - it's incredible. Don't regret spending money on it - enter the house exhibition, which is under the tent. It was probably the most interesting part... More

The Ephesus Museum (Efes Müzesi) in the town of Selçuk (map) holds the best of the archeological objects excavated at Ephesus, a few artifacts from Ephesus's great Temple of Artemis (the Artemision), and finds from some of the many other significant ancient Hellenic, Hellenistic and Roman cities in the region.

The museum is located in the middle of town and is definitely worth seeing just for the Artemis statues. The introductory video in the first room about the history of Ephesus is a little bit annoying as it plays in different languages and if you want to watch it you have to wait till it plays in a language you...

The museum is quite average. The movie in the beginning is the most worth thing here (for me). it gives an excellent insight on how Ephesus city was during the Roman period with sketches and deep dive on everyday life. The movie plays in different languages. The rest are remains that were found on the site (not very interesting for... More

After seeing Ephesus, this was worth a visit. Ask for the introductory video to be played in your language - lasts about 12 minutes. Museum is well laid out and everything is presented beautifully. Make sure to see the statue of Artemis. Nice little Museum shop and clean toilets at entrance.

Selcuk is such an interesting place and a perfect location to stay when touring Ephesus. The museums, mosques, shopping, quaint hotels and food were amazing. This is worth including in a trip to Turkey. It's also close to the last resting place of the Virgin Mary.
