Antalya Archaeological Museum
Located about two kilometres (just over a mile) west of the old quarter and boasting one the richest collections in Turkey, the Antalya Archaeological Museum houses exquisite statues and artefacts that hail from the civilisations of Lycia, Perge, Rome, Byzantium and more. It’s housed in 13 display halls (including a children’s section), and both art history and archaeology lovers will find plenty to admire here. The museum’s most renowned collection is its ‘Hall of Gods’ display, which features second-century statues and busts of Greek gods and goddesses such as Zeus, Athena and Aphrodite.
Pro tip: Museums in Turkey close on Mondays, so plan your visit accordingly.
