Side Museum, Side

4.5
Explore some of the most notable ruins of an ancient town in Asia Minor at Side Museum. A complex of Roman baths, with pools and mosaics dating from the 5th and 6th centuries CE, houses the museum's collection. The exhibits include sun dials, portraits and busts, sarcophagi and steles, weapon embossing work, columns, pedestals, and capitals from Roman, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods. Look for the Roman copies of Greek statues of Heracles, Hermes, Athena, Apollo, the Three Graces, and Nike. The late Hittite period is represented by several basalt craters. Professor Arif Müfid Mansel discovered most of the artifacts in excavations during 1947-1967.

  • I wouldn’t travel far out of my way to go here, but it’s worth a look if you’re ambling around Side. Interesting coin collection.  more »
  • Very cheap to get in. Situated just off the prom before you enter Side. The entrance is on the main road into Side opposite the collumsium. It is very small so will only take 30 mins to go around...  more »

  • Well worth a visit to see statues, exhibits etc. Air con a nice relief from the heat of the day.
  • It's really good but small. Other parts of the ancient city can restore like this part and become a huge museum. Modern road should be removed over the ancient pieces
