  • Old shipwracks halls were intresting and impressive Also from castle there is a breathteaking view of Bodrum  more »
  • The country is similar to any other place or whether you may come across in the Museum's works, just the thought of being able to see the Museum here. A charming place. ' State of the island's Queen skeleton is impressive. With the Queen's Crown off a photo, do not forget to add between your memories:))

  • The ruins are contained within is really worth a visit. Also, if you have an interest in the studies that have been done under water is really useful information and important artifacts.

  • 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
