The museum is in the city centre.You can walk or go by bus. There are nice pieces inside and outside the museum. Despite its being small, it is worth to see. Except Monday, you can visit everyday.

Nice little museum with several interesting exhibits such as Hadrian statue from Troy Odeon and sarchophagus. I loved Aphrodite's statuette. The most beautifull part of the museum is garden where the stones, pillars and amphoras are scattered in a charming way among the bushes of...More

The museum is poorly curated. Although there are some excellent artefacts on display, they are not shown to full advantage. The information is written in Turkish with no English translation, and in some sections the lighting is quite poor.
