“Fort of ST John's”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Visiting the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archeology you get to see two ways of life. First you get to see how the Knights of St John's lived and how the Castle was preserved and how it was used to so the underwater Arcehology museum was set up.
all in all it is a great educational experience.

“A Gem of History”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This museum is well presented and very interesting audio available at a small charge, it is well spread out with lots of steps not suitable for disabled however the artefacts and history was well worth the admission fee of 25 lira

“Fascinating museum.”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The only thing wrong here is that we were told it could be seen in an hour or so. However, one could spend all day here, and at least 3 hours are necessary to do it justice. The re-creations of ancient shipwrecks are fascinating, and the castle itself is great.

“Great site to visit”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

One could really spend hours here, you get to explore the whole castle as well as see some of the fascinating items recovered from the sea. Well worth a visit.
