(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The State Art and Sculpture Museum is a museum dedicated to fine arts and sculpture in Ankara, Turkey. It was designed in 1927 by architect Arif Hikmet Koyunoğlu and built between 1927 and 1930 as the Türkocağı Building, upon the direction of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder and first President of Turkey. It is located close to the Ethnography Museum and houses a rich collection of Turkish art from the late 19th century to the present day. There are also galleries for guest exhibitions.The museum was reopened after the restoration of the building in 1980. Today, the museum is a center of art where the most outstanding works of the artists who played important roles in the development of Turkish painting and sculpture are exhibited. In addition to the collections of art works reflecting the formation and development periods of Turkish plastic arts, and its classification, and to the Library of Plastic Arts which fills the gap in this field, the archives of Turkish artists satisfactorily respond to the needs of researchers working in these fields.The protection of the works of fine arts, which is one of the most important responsibilities of the museum beside training, is done by employing a method particularly developed to ensure the most satisfactory results when dealing with the problems arising from temperature, humidity and sorting difficulties. Any damage due to aging which may occur in spite of all protection measures are restored by experts in the special restoration unit which has been set up as a separate division within the museum.

  • Since the 19th century Turkish art are exhibited the important tables, with Architect Arif Hikmet Koyunoğlu out of the hands of a great building. He can't stop thinking about the people; the limited facilities in the first years of the Republic so simple, can be such a beautiful building, 21. yy. We're not even close to this today with the technology of aesthetics. Our criminal architect, zihniyetimizde? The only thing I feel this modest Museum while visiting hüzündü. Because, since there are about 5 million people live in the capital, there were scant three visits. Hoca Ali Riza, Osman Hamdi Bey, Devrim Erbil, Fahrünisa Zeid and a lot more ressamımızın's works are on display. The sculptures are the minimum number of afflicted almost unobtrusive. Take your kids this beautiful Museum. There is also a beautiful garden of the Museum, you can also sit and watch Ankara.
