  • Amazing museum, need half a day to really see. The artifacts are from Karahanlitepe. Gobeklitepe and the surrounding neolitic sites.

  • Definitely a museum to visit. It is a large museum in which I spent hours together with the voice guide. The voice guide takes you through the eras. The museum is very nicely decorated and also has a cafe and a gift shop. After visiting the museum I recommend you to go to Göbeklitepe. This museum is a must see!
  • The museum and the space around it are exceptionally well designed and with great diligence. All texts are in Turkish and English. My only remark is not to the museum, but to the fact that almost all the books in the store are in Turkish. Books about the region and its history must be available in other languages. А must visit place when you are in the region. Location of the museums (archeological and mosaics) is close to the tombs from pre-Roman and Roman times (about 300 meters away). Park around museum complex is nice place for walks and relax.
