State Art and Scuplture Museum, Ankara

4.5
#10 of 24 in Museums in Ankara
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.

  • The rarest of the Turkish painter and sculptor whose works are on display. This museum was built by Ataturk and the building works much in State-of-the-art. And free, not necessarily should include the, it should be allowed.

Where to stay in Ankara

Among the Roman ruins and citadels of the city of Ankara sits a collection of glitzy, upscale chain hotels. This cosmopolitan city may not be the best choice for the budget-conscious, so if shelling out a lot of money isn't your prerogative, look a little north of the city core to the independent hotels which are a bit more moderately priced. Alternatively, opt for an authentic, family-run Ottoman inn or boutique hotel. You'll find only one hostel here, which tends to fill up quickly.
