Interactive displays and foreign-language audio guides showcase the story of baklava and Gaziantep's history of shoemaking. Relax with a tea, coffee or cold beer in the Bayazhan's courtyard cafe's. There's also occasional live music, and stalls selling local crafts.

I advise the travelers to go to this museum before touring in culture road so they can have a brief knowledge of Antep history, art, traditions and culinary. The Bayazhan itself is also a historical inn that you can eat and shop so pay a visit to it after visiting the museum.

Totally recommend to anyone. It is like a complex. It has a fine dining restaurant, Meyhane, Lounge area and Pub seperately. They are serving local tastes which is amazing. We've been in restaurant and Pub and that was superb. Food is delicious. In weekdays it is quiet but in weekends so crowded. You can see some celebrities. Atmosphere is magnificent.... More

An interesting portrayal of the social and economic history of the city and its people - lots about the trades and traditional crafts of the area - beautiful displays of fabrics.
