A small museum with some interesting pieces. Very board staff with nothing much to do except make a lot of noise. There is an interesting bronze statute and excellent range of coins.

Travel to Izmir often to see my husband's family and it was our first time there - it is quite small but it has a lot of great artifacts, specific to the Izmir area. The price includes access to the Ethnography Museum so stop in...More
