  • The museum is great I advise anyone visiting Bodrum to visit it.
  • A very nice museum. not open on the lunch hours :(
  • The building alone is a stunning place to visit. The old castle on the water is beautiful and large. But the treasures inside are also fantastic and show centuries of artefacts. Definitely one of the best things to see in Bodrum. It takes a couple of hours to visit the castle and see all the exhibits.
  • It smells of history
