“be careful”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

what a lovely place plenty to see, however the shops wont leave u alone, they managed to get my husband in and then tried to sell him jeans that wernt to our budget, so after a lot of shouting amoungst themselves we walked out only to be abused on street calling us all sort-i got scared as i had a family-went and stood by harbour for a while and you could sense the atmosphere with the locals so we rushed back to taxi and away

“Definitely worth visiting”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Although only small the museum in Side is definitely worth a visit as it has a fascinating array of artefacts. It was only 10TL (about £3) per adult and our children aged 12 & 9 were allowed in free.
The one thing they could do to improve it is have more information about what you are looking at, explaining more about the history of the items on display and of Side as an ancient site.

“Interesting visit”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

A couple of useful statues and remnants of Greek & Roman periods. Pleasant with good air conditioning vs stifling heat outdoors

“Side Museum”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Fantastic collection of artefacts, well labelled. Suitable for ages 9 - 45! Note that you can only pay in TL not Euros. Only small so doesn't take more than an hour or so. Lovely peaceful settings/gardens too...

“Museum with lots of interesting artifacts”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

With ticket costing only 10 lira / person, you will have lots and lots different kinds of artifacts to see. There was also some kinds of birds running free in the backyard. Museum itself was restored roman bath so it was really worth to see. We enjoyed a lot.
