Very well organized, easy to get in the city center. Just opposite the forum aydin mall.

The objects in here are placed in a chronological order and are beautiful examples of prehistoric, Hellenistic , Roman , Byzantine , Seljuk and Ottoman eras. There are axes, cutting and drilling tools, idols, spindles, whorls, ceramics made from burnt clay, oil lamps, masks, small statues, glass objects, gold, silver and bronze jewellery, medical instruments, cosmetic material and guns. There are very beautiful Hellenistic artefacts from Tralleis such as a bust of Athena, a Nike statue, a Satyr statue and various others along with embossing that decorates the halls. You will also find terracotta’s, oil lamps, unguentariums (glass bottles) and toy figurines taken from the Tralleis necropolis which make up this special collection.

Aydin was our lunch stop on our way from Pamukkale, and we were planning to visit the ruin of Tralles at Aydin. Because we simply passed the museum and the building looked really nice we decided to stop there as well.

The collection is, for a relatively small museum, really surprising, and had some (as far as I am aware) unique pieces (I particularly liked a pottery chicken in a red slipped ware). And in comparison to many other Turkish archaeological musea they give much more attention to the small finds.

Our kids really liked the children corner with the old fashioned diy wooden toys. My oldest daughter (5 years) particularly like the bow and arrow (made of twigs) and really kept practicing for half an hour until she got it right (while she normally has an attention span of 10 seconds). But apart from the play area they also liked the collection itself. They played around with a touch screen that provided extra information about 5 important finds in the collection, and really enjoyed looking for the real artifacts in the museum.

Don't skip this museum when you are in Aydin

We sort of stumbled on the museum while the rest of our group was busy with lunch and shopping across the street. It is an excellent little museum, especially after the disappointment of finding a large portion of Ankara's Museum of Anatolian Civilization to be closed. The interpretation was top notch and the majority of the excellent artifacts seem to have been sourced locally. I would definitely recccomend this excellent museum.
