Give architects credit. The design of the museum is pleasant and contemporary as you make your way through various stages of human development in the Fertile Crescent.

One day isn’t enough to take it all in. The highlight is being able to wander inside a replica of Göbeklitepe. Then walking chronologically from the early Stone Age to today. There are thousands of objects many from the excavations ahead of the submerging of...More

We learned so much in this museum. I delighted with the first statue ever made (12,000 years old!) and with so many pieces from the Paleolothic to the Islamic periods, including amazing reproductions of Gobeklitepe. The Hellenistic collection is very interesting. It helped us better...More

This is one of Turkey's top archaeological museums, and they have done a good job of it. The building is splendid and the artefacts beautifully displayed - lighting is used really effectively. Objects are clearly labelled in English as well as Turkish.
