The Museum Of Underwater Archeology
Bodrum should start with the castle of Knights of John, which is great witness
to amazing history of the castle. Thanks to efforts of Turkish and foreign
scholars who carried out successful archeological digs both on land and at sea,
the castle is turned into one of the greatest Underwater Archeology museums of the world.
The museum starts an Amphora Park where visitors
enjoy various types of amphorae coming from famous wine producing centers of the
world. The old Spanish Chapel now houses famous Yassiada
Wreck or East Roman Ship. The Glass Wreck
Section of the museum has most stunning display of glass objects discovered at
Serçe Limani and the hull of the ship. Uluburun
Hall is reserved for Bronze Age Wrecks. Artifacts, discovered at Gelidonya,
Seytan Deresi and Uluburun are displayed there. The museum has also Glass
Exhibit Hall and Carian Princess Ada Room.
