In a big building in Gülhane Park is Istanbul Archaeology Museum. On the groundfloor there is a collection of Greek and Roman statues. There are also finds and big sarcophagi from the royal necropolis in Sidon (Lebanon). Don't miss the Alexander sarcophagi with detailed carvings on the sides.
On the upper floor there are a lot of pottery from Troj, dating from different periods.

The Tiled Pavilion and the museum of the Ancient Orient are situated around the same courtyard and are also included in the price.
