"Arkeoloji Muzesi" Archeology Museum Tip by WulfstanTraveller
Archeology Museum, Istanbul: 48 reviews and 141 photos
Istanbul's Archaeology Museum, built in the late 19th-century under Sultan Abdulhamit II, is a great museum. It's not on the scale of the British Museum and is not comparable to Ankara's Museum of Anatolian Civilizations if one wants to see Anatolian materials, but possesses an extensive collection of ancient artifacts nevertheless. Some of the Greek and Hellenistic pieces are among the finest pieces of deep relief I have ever seen, and it has some Anatolian and other artifacts as well.
Address: In Gulhane Park next to Topkapi Sarayi.
Directions: Gulhane Park, near Topkapi Palace. From the entrance to Gulhane between the Gulhane Tram stop on Alemdar Cad., and the lower end of Sogukcesme Sok., the path through the park goes almost straight to the museum.
