"Archeology Museum" Archeology Museum Tip by terrycowan

Archeology Museum, Istanbul: 49 reviews and 146 photos

The Archeology Museum is certainly worth a visit. It is located adjacent to Topkapi, so is easy to see along with the palace. The collection of Greek sculpture is well-presented and impressive. The museum had a large exhibit of artifacts uncovered at Troy. The tombs of some of the Byzantine emperors placed outside the building are interesting, as well.
