The Basics

The Antalya Museum is a popular inclusion on sightseeing tours of the city, often in combination with a walking tour of the Old Town (Kaleici) and marina. Inside, visitors can explore the 13 galleries, which include prehistoric artifacts, pottery, mosaics, and various statues, as well as sarcophagi, coins, jewelry, and ethnographic items. The museum also has an open-air sculpture gallery and a garden.

For travelers planning to visit nearby ancient cities such as Side, Perge, and Termessos, a tour of the museum can offer greater insight into the region’s long history, with a number of excavated items on display.

Best way to see the city
This was the best tour we have done in Antalya. An ideal way to see the city. We did it our second day after arriving. Excellent to get a feel for the place. The city has a wonderful line of bike paths and the ride and sites and views are ridiculously beautiful. We would not have seen a fraction of this had we not done the electric bike tour. Better than regular cycling, as you can cover more area with less effort. Our guide, Ozcan, was friendly and knowledgeable and clearly loves his job. Just a perfect day. Thank you so much!

We had a the best tour ever of Antalya. Highly recommended to those who want to see Antalya wonderful natural views, old city narrow streets and beaches. We crossed the whole Antalya from north to south all the time along the Mediterranean in about 4 hours but were never tired because we had so many stops with brilliant commentaries. We also had plentiful drink breaks, ice cream break and lunch break. My greetings to our excellent guide and friend Mr. Ozcan wishing him all success in expanding his small company further.

Highlights of the Antalya Museum

The museum collection features excavated finds from some of Anatolia’s most important archaeological sites, including the Karain Cave, Perge, and Pisidian Antioch. Highlights include a reconstructed Bronze Age urn from Elmalı, a pantheon and numerous friezes from Perge, a collection of ancient Greek and medieval coins, and an impressive collection of sarcophagi, including a rare, medallion-encrusted Nike sarcophagus. One of the most recent additions is a collection of bones believed to be those of Saint Nicholas, found beneath the Church of St. Nicholas in Demre in 2017.
