If you have been to Ephesus, as I have, then a visit to this museum is essential. Located in the part of the Hofburg palace, I got the impression that this exhibition is often overlooked. This is an injustice to the collection of Classical sculptures...More

You may be fated to see this infrequently visited museum if you've bought the combination ticket including it with the much more memorableTreasury. There's certainly nothing wrong with this Ephasus museum. It's just that you'll be disappointed if you've visited Ephesus itself. Displayed here are...More

We spent 15 Euros to get to museum to find out it has been closed for renovation. We expect more from TripAdvisor. We usually have good luck using the app for information.

This is a large collection of ancient Greek artefacts which are displayed beautifully. An audio guide comes with the purchase of the entrance ticket and gives a good explanation of the pieces. The building in which the museum is housed is also stunning. Highly recommended.

The Neue Burg today hosts three museums. The most interesting in my opinion is the Ephesos Museum which includes excavations and antiquities from Ephesus in Turkey. The other, the Sammlug Alter Musik Instrumente and the Collection of Arms and Armour are smaller museums but admission...More

Small but interesting archaeological museum with things found near the Turkish city of Ephesus. If you expect something like the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, you will be disappointed.

This collection of antiquity pieces is really interesting but you will need the audio guide as a comprehensive explanation is given about individual pieces on a numbered basis. The collection is extensive and presented beautifully. The other attraction is the building within which the collection...More

A nice and small museum that you can visit and get plenty of historical information. You can finish the visit in about an hour. Be sure to get the audio guide because there no English explanations inside.
