Antalya Archeological Museum is one of largest Turkish museums, located in Konyaaltı, Antalya. It has 13 exhibition halls and an open gallery. It covers an area of 7000m² (almost 2 acres) and 5000 works of art. This is also the city that St.Nikolas was born in Patara but lived most of his life in Antalya (nearby small town of Demre)....

We took our grandsons last year and they never lost interest all day! We have been several times over the years and have noted improvements every time as more historical artefacts are discovered Like most Greek history they seemed to select sites where earthquakes occurred thus a lot of damaged goods but worth a visit to be amazed at the...

Not very expensive with 20 lira and a lot of things to see. Dont forget to eat and drink before entering because no food / drink is allowed inside and there is no restaurant.

It is mainly collection of ancient statues. As I heard before the museum is big and I was expected variety of items and such diversity in shows but it was mainly statues. The entrance fee was 20 TL equal to 7 USD. If u do not like statues better not to go. The good thing is near the beach and... More

I was at the Antalya Museum with my family and friends recently. I have been most of archeological museums in Turkey but I can tell easily that this museum mesmerize you with archeological founds, most of them from west to east of Mediterranean civilizations, such as Lycia, Pamphilya, Psidia. If you are interested in archeology, and wanted to see famous... More

The nice exhibitions are about the greek mythology, not much of english writing. Lacking the Ottoman empire, but very interesting to see sculptures and old findings from different eras.

Great museum! With lots of Roman history. Love the equipment the museum rent you so you could listen to the history with more details. I would have loved to see some Turk history with the Roman history. Sculptures where reconstructed in a very professional way. Overall I think is a nice place to visit if you are interested in learning... More

Though Antalya Museum may not compare to its peers in different parts of the world, it is still very rich in demonstrating what Anatolia has to share with us... The exhibits could be much more attractive considering the richness of our lands and the number of visitors could be much higher. Still, the museum is a great place to have... More

Museum is very well organized, especially garden part that is beautifull in a special way. Halls are wide and have that touch of the ceremoniously atmosphere and you can really enjoy exhibitions if you are a lover of an ancient history. Apart from showcases with various exhibits from various periods, you can see many statues of ancient heroes, emperors, philosophers,... More
