There is a huge collection of wonderful paintings that you can spend peaceful time with. The building itself is located in a relaxing area. Plus, you don't need to pay for entering. If you visit the Ethnological Museum next door, don't miss this place:)

The nice museum has an extensive collection of all kinds of art. The museum is next to the Ethnographic Museum and worth visiting as well. The admission to the art museum is free and a nice find.

In a very beautiful building from 1920's, there are very valuable old paintings and statues, And next to this building, there is the Ethographic Museum. Be careful about the traffic if you cross the street next to this museum.

Visited the State Art & Sculpture Museum in Ankara and thoroughly enjoyed it. Admission was free; there was no guided tours but it was set up so that you moved through the galleries in roughly chronological order. It doesn't go back into Turkey's older past,...More

We went to this art gallery after the Ethnographic Museum which had lowered our expectations, especially as admission to this handsome museum is free. There are also free lockers available to store any bags or backpacks. The first thing that struck us was the number...More
