I didn't know to much about the history these sites held so it was nice to be able to walk around and read a few things and take in the sites. While worth to come visit.

This museum was more exciting and engaging than the actual ruins on the site of Troy. An excellent, creative and informative presentation of the area's history. We easily spent about 2 hours walking around.

It is a military museum established to serve the need for informing the visitors about Çanakkale Naval Battle and Campaign. In the complex of the museum many guns and objects used during Çanakkale Battles, Çimenlik Fortress, Nusret Mine Layer, German Submarine, ACAR Museum ship used by ATATÜRK and a library can be found.
We had less than an hour to explore, having arrived late in the day but it was still very good. The ticket price was only 12TL, for that you get a small tour on a naval vessel, access to a gallery inside the fortress as well as a multitude of outdoor exhibits of weapons. We could have easily spent 2 hours here. The only minor criticism I could make was that many of the exhibits only have Turkish language information. I would have liked to have seen more exhibit descriptions in English.

The Movie Troy Statue is much more beautiful than the original, this one became iconic landmark for the town, worth to visit and walk around.

Site of the heroic siege in in Homer's Iliad, Troy (Truva in Turkish, Ilion in Greek) was excavated in the 1870s by Heinrich Schliemann. He uncovered civilizations dating back 5,000 years, including best-preserved Roman architecture. Explanatory materials at the site are limited, so visitors should bring a good history text or hire a guide.
I am still gloating over the lmpact of my visit to Troy yesterday. The presence of the wooden horse at the entrance is surrounded by mystery. The legend has it that the Greek soldiers came hidden in it during the Trojan war though its authenticity is yet to be established. The ruins of the city are well preserved and a wooden pathway makes the place easily accessible.There is a great sense of well being as we walk around.
