Great museum, with lots of interesting information. Nicely set out, lots of artefacts. I'm not really a museum person, but found this one very interesting. It did get quite busy with tour groups while i was there, but it was still enjoyable. There was a cafe inside, but it was closed. The museum is located up a very steep hill,... More

Excellent museum will very helpful staff and well curated displays. The shop and restaurant were closed probably because I visited on New Year's Day. Its worth walking to the museum as you will pass some very interesting traditional markets, it is a bit of a hike.

Wonderful and in a nice setting. To be seen slowly and with care, almost each piece is unique, and now includes reproductions from Gobleki Tepe... Simply superb

Very rare items are exhibited here. In a nutshell you can see the masterpieces of Asia Minor. If you are not there with a guide make sure you take an audio guide though it is well exhibited and informative, the audio guide is always one step ahead. Some pieces brought tears in my eyes.

The collection of findings is quite huge, however there are many findings from early ages, the working hours is not convenient as they worked only till 5 on Saturday. The entrance fee is 20 tl.

Entering this museum I didn't expect anything special, but it was not just another collection of old stones. Really, I have never seen anything like that before, even in Istanbul Archeological Museum. The relics coming from ancient Anatolyan cults and religions, like a goddess with big butt, captivated my imagination. Beautiful carvings, gold and silver jewelries and painted decorations were...
