The Efes Experience Museum, located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ephesus, has been honored with the "Best Museum" award. The museum triumphed at the Mondo-Dr Awards, one of the world's most prestigious recognitions in technology, design, and exhibition.

Outshining global competitors

The Efes Experience Museum surpassed renowned museums such as Paris's Eternal Mucha and Denmark's Carl Nielsen and Regan Vest to secure a place among the top four. In the finals, it competed against the Aramco VIP Visitor Center in Riyadh, India's India in Fashion, and Paris's Dome Des Invalides Museums.

This year, the Efes Experience Museum clinched the first place in the "Museums" category at the Mondo-Dr 2024 Awards. The award ceremony was held in Las Vegas on June 12th. Notably, last year’s winner in the same category was Dubai’s "Museum of the Future."
