We were in Bodrum in October, one of the big disappointment is the archeological scene. The museum was closed and there was no infomation about its closure if not at the same entrance...not even a substitute exhibition, just a cheap "art gallery" with dubious taste....More

Very interesting, I enjoyed reading up on the history of Bodrum; one observation is the English wasn't reviewed/edited prior to printing so some of the information was challenging to make sense of... Otherwise beautiful experience

Interesting collection of shells and sea life from around the coast. Also there is an obvious pride in their boat building past and present. Worth a visit.

The museum is closed for repairs. No information on the website. Very bad publicity for an international tourist attraction! If we knew we could have saved a lot of money and time.

Lots of stairs and good views. Lots of information with interesting facts. We spent a few hours walking around learning historical facts about sunken ships and their cargo and there are also examples of tools, armour and weapons that were used in the past.
