Fodor's Review

Look over the railing in the lobby, down at a spectacular classical mosaic of lions, peacocks, and other brightly colored creatures, then wander down haunting (but pitiably lit) halls of statuary, which include a front-row Hellenistic theater seat carved with griffins, a Hellenistc bronze of a running athlete, and evocative Roman faces. Upstairs you'll find unusual painted ceramic sarcophagi (including the heart-breaking skeleton of a Byzantine newborn), and a modest collection

of jewelry and coins—and there's a neat view of the city. An English-language audioguide is included in the price of admission, and is highly recommended.
