This was a nice little museum with some interesting artefacts. Climbing to the top of the castle and looking out on Marmaris was amazing. Definitely worth the trip for the views. The only downside was the weird rules security guards had. Me and my husband...More

Well worth a visit. Although not far from the harbour (the posh part) it can be a little hard to find but just ask someone at a nearby restaurant. It offers nice views of the harbour and some intersting exhibits.

This castle/museum is absolutely stunning! Amazing pieces of history and beautiful views from the top of the castle across Marmaris and the sea. This is a must see if in marmaris. As long as you are fit...the steps are very steep.

Although the first impression you get once arrived by ship in Marmaris is that of a resort for rich people, you change this impression once you arrive to the Castle. This awesome place has archaeological findings, from different epochs and civilizations, distributed around different rooms...More
