Fodor's Review

Slated to re-open in 2014 after major renovations, this small museum has one of the best collections of Roman and Greek artifacts found anywhere in Turkey. Along with some fine frescoes and mosaics are two white statues of Artemis. In each, the goddess is portrayed with several rows of what are alternatively described as breasts, or a belt of eggs, or sacrificed bull testicles; in any case, they symbolize fertility. Check with your hotel or the tourist office to see if the museum is still under a dusty cloud of construction.
