Ephesus Archaeological Museum
Many of the great archaeological finds at Ephesus are now, not surprisingly, in the British Museum and Vienna's Ephesos Museum, as archaeologists from England oversaw the 19th-century excavations of the site and Austrians the early 20th-century ones. After the Turkish Republic was established, however, antiquities could no longer be exported and many are now in the Ephesus Archaeological Museum. The museum's galleries are organized not chronologically, but around themes such as gladiators and the goddess Artemis (or Diana)—a statue of Artemis is the museum's single most famous work.
