Arkeoloji Müzesi (Archaeology Museum)
Arkeoloji Müzesi (Archaeology Museum) Review
Though not terribly well-lighted or inviting, this small museum houses a substantial collection of statues, coins, and other artifacts excavated from the ancient city as well as an ethnography section. A relief from the Kızıl Avlu (Red Basilica) showing gladiators fighting bulls and bears and some elaborate sarcophagi and gravestones from the region are particularly noteworthy. The well-preserved statue of Nymphe comes from the site of Allianoi, a Roman spa town now submerged under the waters of a dam completed in 2010.
