Owner description: This important museum displays the pieces found in and around the ruins of Ephesus. Prior to World War II, discoveries were taken to a museum in Vienna.

This museum has a great collection of roman period sculptures and bas reliefs and is a worthwhile complement to a visit of Ephesus.

Given the anciet history of Turkey and what museums have to offer, this was a very average experience for us. You can skip it easily without having to regret in my opinion!

It's closed at the moment for renovations but a really interesting museum.
Selcuk, where the museum is, is the site of the ONLY GLadiators cemetery found in the ancient world.
The exhibits show how the gladiators were dispatched in the arena. A bit gory but unique.
It also presents evidence of the final solution - if you were too badly wounded they ' tapped' you on the head with a star shaped hammer to put you out of agony.
They also show clear evidence of quite skilled surgery - after all Gladiators were an expensive commodity.

Very disappointed that this museum is closed. So many of the relics of the region are in the collection. We had been looking forward to seeing all these works collected from other sites we visited. Alas

I loved the ruins and the mosaic floors. The library was mostly rebuilt. I loved the city roads with wheel markings and signs. It was incredibly crowded.
