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.

  • Excellent museum, with many interesting exhibits and beautiful antique mosaics. The piece de resistance, the Gypsy Girl mosaic, is impressive and very well presented.

  • Amazing museum, some mosaic pieces are perfectly preserved and some lack so many pieces to extent that you would not recognize the art! The museum is well organized but functions that include touch screens were disabled during c-19. Absolutely worth visiting.
  • 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.
