Zeugma Mosaic Museum exhibits the Roman floor mosaics discovered in an ancient town reputedly founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals. The museum features 1,700 sq m (18,300 sq ft) of the colorful, intricate designs. Of particular note are mosaic scenes depicting a gypsy girl and the birth of Venus. Watch the film at the entrance to learn about the history of the ancient city. Head to the second floor for the best views of nearly complete mosaics retrieved from Roman villas before the site was flooded. Modern interactive displays, music, and lighting bring these historical pieces back to life.

  • It's a fairly big museum to look at with some nice pieces. I would recommend to buy headphones if you are really interested as there is not too much text inside to read. Overall a nice experience and the room with the gypsy Mosaic was a nice experience. If your in town you might aswell take an hour to come look at this.
  • Beautiful museum with an amazing collection of artifacts. It's definitely worth a visit. The museum its self is clean, informative and nicely laid out. The audio headset are good but they only cover the main building collections.
