Museum of Fethiye
The Fethiye Museum is a delightful museum, located off the main street in the center of town next to a school. It has many Lycian artifacts, some of which were found during the excavations of Fethiye (ancient Telmessos).
Exhibits include Lycian pieces from the Bronze, Archaic, Hellenistic and Roman ages and from Byzantine times. There are coins from various periods, pre-historical and historical ornaments, statues, busts etc. Also pieces of a tomb from Tlos, grave steles, offering altars, jewelry, bronze pieces, amphorae, column pedestals and capitals and earthenware vases. One very significant find displayed here is the very important 'Trilingual Stele' from Letoon, bearing inscriptions in Greek, Lycian and Aramaic, which is crucial in the deciphering of the Lycian language. There is also a separate ethnographic section with pieces from the Menteşe and Ottoman times. Outside the museum is an open-air gallery with many interesting pieces.
