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.

Ephesus Archaeological Museum

The Museum of Ephesus is in the district of Selçuk. Artifacts found in the excavations in Ephesus are displayed in a contemporary style in the halls of the museum according to the places where they were discovered. The first hall contains the findings relating to houses. Here are displayed artifacts found in the excavations carried out in the houses in Ephesus for nearly thirty years. Although the duration of the excavations was long the number of

houses excavated was small. These were the houses standing on the slopes facing the Curetés Street. See more at:
