  • An immense collection of statues, friezes and sarcophagi recovered from Perge is wonderfully presented. Additional exhibits from pre-Roman times from the Antalya area.  more »
  • We had read that this was well worth visiting and it certainly was. There was a wealth of material from the surrounding archaeological digs. This included some incredibly ancient finds from up to 100,...  more »
  • Entrance for the museum was insanely cheap at just 20 Turkish Lira per person. We chose not to get the audio tour since we were pressed for time and felt we’d spend hours there if we did, but this was...  more »

  • A decent museum with a large collection ranging from pre-history to late Roman times. Very little about the Middle Ages and Modern History though. The first floor boasts an astonishing collection of ancient coins. The entrance fee of 20TL (2018) is well worth it. At tip: try visiting around noon, when the day is at its hottest. You will love the giant air-conditioned halls.
  • Wonderful museum. It is true that the museum doesn't look like much from the outside but once you get in....there is the history you have been looking for! Best collection of gorgeous sculptures of the perfectionist Hellenistic and the realism of the classical era alike. Neolithic times up to the Ottoman Empire. If you are a lover of the world history roaming in Türkiye, you have got to get a Museum Card at once! Go for it. I was sooo exited I didn't even think about taking pictures. There are tons of pamphlets, tags and explanations to read. Did you know that the sculptures were mass produced by the order of the Roman Emperor and how they were mass produced? Go in there and learn. You will enjoy this museum a lot. Please say hi to all of the emperors and Alex the great for me. You are going in right? Ok.
  • wow I have NEVER seen so many ancient coins and they are beautiful. the exhibits are really sophisticately curated and I was awestruck by the "puzzle building" to put together statues that had been shattered into hundreds and even thousands of pieces. Well worth the visit especially for archeology fans.
  • wonderfull place. It has Amazing and unique sculptures.
  • A great museum. it has lot of precious things and statues. I really enjoyed my time there
