Fodor's Review

Recently reopened after major renovations, this small museum has one of the best collections of Roman and Greek artifacts found anywhere in Turkey. The well-displayed and labeled holdings date from the prehistoric to Ottoman periods and include fine sculptures, friezes, mosaics, and reliefs, The elaborately carved white statues of Artemis are particularly notable, while the exhibit of jewelry, cosmetics, medical instruments, and housewares from Ephesus's terrace houses gives an intimate glimpse into day-to-day life in the ancient city. TIP: You can buy combo tickets here good for entry to both the museum and the St. John Basilica (15 TL) or the Ephesus Archaeological Site (35 TL).
