The Archeology Museum is a place not to be missed while in Istanbul! It can be reached by walking down the slope from Topkapi Palace.

This complex is divided in three buildings, the Museum of Oriental Antiquities, the Archaeological Museum and the Tiled Pavillion. It houses one of the world's richest collections of classical artifacts and pre-classical treasures.

There are sixty-thousand archaeological treasures, seven-hundred-sixty thousand coins and medallions, and seventy-five thousand clay tablets in these three museums. ''Antique Age Sculpture'' examples are exhibited in the halls to the right of the entrance.
Unique examples of sculpture from the Archaic age until the end of Roman era . A place worth a visit!
