  Sitting Mother Goddess from Catal Hüyük
by MalenaN

Favorite thing: This is a must see as the best artefacts from excavations made in Anatolia can be found here. In the basement there are exhibitions of Greek and Roman artefacts but the best part is the different rooms on the groundfloor showing the pre-classical civilisations of Anatolia.
As you enter the museum you will start your tour from the right and come to rooms with items from the Palaeolitic period, Neolitic period (Catal Hüyük), Chalcolithic era, Bronze age (Alacahöyük), Assyrian (Kültepe), Hittite (Hattusas), Phrygian (Gordion), Urartian and Lydian eras.

The museum is housed in an old Han (covered market with workshops) from the 15th century.
The entrance fee is 10 000 000 TL.
It might be closed on Mondays.
