I was glad I took the time to visit the archeological museum. The collection consists of a floor of sculptures (primarily 1st century BC - 3rd century AD), a floor of pottery spanning many centuries, and a collection of ancient jewelry and coins. The sculptures were underwhelming, not because they weren't good (they were) but only because so much stone sculpture survives from this period that I had seen a lot before. The pottery exhibit was also good, just not of particular interest to me personally. What impressed me was the jewelry and coins exhibit, especially the coins. They had coins dating back 500 BC to the Persian Empire--some of the oldest coins in existence. There was also an impressive display of Ronan coins from the 2nd century through the Ottoman Empire. The first century was conspicuous absent but every other Cesar's image was represented, usually with multiple coins minted during his reign. Definitely check out the Ethnolmology Museum directly across the street. Also a good museum and shame to miss if you are already there.
