Brush up on your ancient history at the Archaeology Museum

Museums Fatih İstanbul Arkeoloji Müzesi

What is it? Established in the late 19th century as Turkey’s first museum, the Istanbul Archaeology Museum is divided into three sections: Archaeology, Ancient Orient and Islamic Art.

Why go? A sojourn through Istanbul’s old city is not complete without a visit here and to say its treasure trove of relics is well-stocked would be an understatement: the musuem holds a large collection of Ancient Greek, Roman and Turkish artefacts, as well as objects discovered in the Balkans, Africa, Mesopotamia and the Middle East. 

Don’t miss: Make sure to come right as it opens, because a full day is necessary to explore its vast collection.
