The Hierapolis Museum or the Denizli Hierapolis Archeology Museum is located within the Aegean Region above the travertines in Pamukkale. It was built on the site of a former Roman bathhouse and is home to many artefacts dating back to Antiquity.

The museum is divided into three sections: the Small Artifacts Gallery, Statues and Sarcophagi Gallery and Theatre Ruins Gallery. It also comprises a garden section, treasury and gymnasium. Some notable exhibits include ancient idols from the Bronze Age, intricate metalwork from the Hellenistic period and jewellery from the Roman and Byzantine empires.
