Museum of Underwater Archaeology

Being  located in Bodrum Castle, the ‘Museum of Underwater Archaeology’ is considered one of the most important underwater archeology museums in the world. It is one of the major attractions to visit in Bodrum. Having 14 exhibition halls, the ‘Bodrum Underwater Archeology Museum’ has the richest collection of Eastern Mediterranean amphorae in the world. Yassıada, Şeytan Deresi (Devil Creek) and Serçe Harbor (Byzantine Wreck) shipwrecks are also exhibited in Bodrum Underwater Archeology Museum.

The world's oldest shipwreck exhibited in the museum is among the important artefacts worth seeing either. This shipwreck, exhibited in the ‘Serçe Harbor Glass Wreck Hall’, is the ship itself that sank in 1025. 3 Tons of broken and solid glass materials were taken out of this shipwreck. Moreover, the world's largest ‘Glass Collection of Islamic Cultural Heritage’ is also exhibited here.
