  • Further down was a museum plan hair Sheza Galipa. Literally a stone's throw from the pottery workshop 38.719842, 34.848638. Museum entrance 3 liras per person. Sanku as interpreter allowed free, and even gave her and me on suspension of stone called Serpentine. This is a very unusual place and unusual collection! Also copy the Dima's text with small reductions: "there are in a small town near Avanos, Goreme, VERY notable place. As said his caretaker, it for all time of its existence never produced official photo and video-Museum of hair. This is despite the fact that the collection of the Museum has been included into the Guinness Book of records. With this unusual place is located in an old Turkish House, more similar to a barn, which was dug in the local soft tuff Rock. This museum is a FEW TENS of THOUSANDS of STRANDS of women's hair! All of which hang on the walls and ceiling, with signatures, telephones, names and surnames of their former proprietresses! Imagine you enter a musty polutemnuju room with rusty doors where around you everywhere and very tight hang colorful and not very long hair ... Pretty eerie sight, similar to the plot of a horror movie, which held his victims captive maniac ...

  • Very nice museum of pottery. The master himself was there. The pieces crafted are very beautiful and the guides give a small presentation on the science behind it. Specially the room with Master's Art is worth going and seeing the pottery flow in the dark room is fantastic. It does look like more of a shop then a museum with more focus on selling the handicrafts then taking you through the museum by the guides. Ridiculously expensive however. You have to bargain a LOT.
  • I paid a lot of money for a custom order piece. The people are very nice when you are there. Unfortunately, they failed to inscribe the back as I asked, even though they took down very detailed instructions to do so. Of course, now, they won't do anything about it. I'm very disappointed.
  • Wonderful hand made pieces , with nice description & demonstration of whole process. Highly recommended
  • What a fabulous collection, you want to own a lot more that you end up purchasing.
  • incredible work ! a must visit !

Where to stay in Avanos

In Avanos, you'll find a lively nightlife. Along the Red River, famous for its red clay, is a collection of moderately priced hotels and a few international chains. The closer you stay to the river, the closer you'll be to the busy town square, pottery making, and cafes that line the waterfront. The more budget-conscious traveler can explore the handful of guesthouses on the north bank of the river, across the footbridge from the main downtown area. If a hostel is more in your price point, look to the neighboring town of Göreme.
