"Archaeology Museum" Archaeology Museum Tip by Willettsworld

Archaeology Museum, Bergama: 3 reviews and 12 photos

This excellent museum is located right in the middle of town and exhibits a fine selection of finds from Pergamon which include a large number of statues that date from the 4th century BC that formed part of the so-called "Pergamon School". Other exhibits include stone inscriptions, tombstones and sarcophaguses, mosaics, small figurines, and parts of columns. The museum also has an ethnography section (see next tip) and a scale model of the Altar of Zeus which is now on display in Berlin. There's also several exhibits outside.

Open: 8am-12pm & 1-5pm. Admission: TL5.
