Small museum but you get to see lots of statues and some history. It's not free, 10 lira to get in and you are done in less than half of hour. Weather hot. Exhibit rooms have AC. A group of Museum staff members sitting in...More

The museum isn't extensive but the exhibits are all interesting and they museum has peacocks which were displaying when we visited. The entrance fees are incredibly reasonable.

Utterly Nonsense. You walk in and visit two rooms and then you are done. It was not worth it at all. The zoo is cheaper and has more to see than statues of bums and breasts. Just pointless to visit. I feel robbed and miss...More
