The museum is opened daily except Mondays from 8:30 am - 19:30 pm.
I would however suggest that you try to visit early as in the later part of the afternoons the tours buses tend to arrive. Admission was 10 YTL ( Turkish Liras )
On the Republic Square you will find the statue of Ataturk. Ataturk was the father of the nation and their first president. He did a lot to bring about reform and was a man of great vision. Situated in the middle of the square this monument is a good meeting place.
Because of the archeological and natural riches of the area, Antalya is called the Turkish Riviera. The sea and sun, nature and history all come together in magical harmony here where the best and cleanest beaches on the Mediterranean are found. The 630 km shoreline of the province is literally strewn with ancient cities and harbors, memorial tombs and golden beaches and it is laced with charming little coves, lush forests and streams.
With its palm-lined boulevards, its internationally acclaimed marina and the charming castle with its traditional architecture set amidst the bustle of a modern city, Antalya is center of tourism in Turkey.
