  • Part of the Bodrum Castle museum this exhibition is one of its kind. A real sinked ancient merchant ship with its cargo is presented to visitor.
  • A great museum, a bit old but the findings are unique and not like any others. There are about 7 to 8 rooms spread in the castle so if you want to see them all, give yourself about 4-5 hours. Don't miss this.
  • 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.
  • The museum is great I advise anyone visiting Bodrum to visit it.
  • A very nice museum. not open on the lunch hours :(
