It is not a very big museum yet it has quite a collection. The film they show at the beginning really help you visualize and unfold the ancient city. The medical tools, vassels and ivory sculpture are very well preserved.

Rich collection of artefacts from and around Ephesus. Loved the coin collection. Somehow found it easier to get through than the Istanbul Archeology Museum which is highly rated.
