Archaeological Museum is located in Selcuk,
which is 70km away from Izmir, where Ephesus
ancient city is found.
In Ephesus, the works of art dug up between 1867-1905 were transported to the British Museum ; those from 1905-1923 taken to Vienna. Then Turkish Republic forbade taking antiques out of the country and founded a museum in Selçuk near Ephesus.Its present form was given in 1983.
The Ephesus Museum is different from other many museums.It is not designed according to chronological order on the contrary it has rooms with a theme.For example the rooms are called as The House Findings Room, The Hall of The Fountain Relics, The Hall of The Funerary Relics, The Hall of Artemis, The Gladiators Section, ...etc.
If you are interested in the works of art and history, we recommend you to see this museum strongly.
