THE RICH MUSEUM OF THE GLORIOUS TOOWN
The Ephesus Museum is one of Turkey’s most prominent museums with exhibits of outstanding artefacts from Mycenaean, Archaic, Classic, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman Eras along with cultural organizations and its high number of visitors.
As the museum exhibits mostly the finds of the ancient city, instead of a chronological and typological presentation, the relics are grouped according to where they were excavated. Therefore, the halls of the museum are organized as Hillside Houses and House Antiques Hall, Coins and Treasure Hall, Tomb Antiques Hall, Ephesus Artemis Hall, Empire Cults Hall. Along with these halls, various architectural and sculptural artefacts are exhibited in harmony with the garden decor in the inner and middle gardens. Among the most famous sculptures are the two big Artemises, The Head of Eros, Eros with Dolphin and the Head of Socrates.
