The Gaziantep Museum of Archaeology is an archaeological museum located in the city of Gaziantep, Turkey.

Other exhibits include a collection of paleolithic artifacts; items from a Bronze Age necropolis; Hittite, Persian, Roman, Hellenistic, and Commagene artworks and glassware; Ottoman and Islamic coins and medallions; and the skeleton of a mammoth. Attached to the museum is a garden containing a selection of stone artifacts, including pagan tombstones from Zeugma, Christian tombstones, and Hittite statuary.The museum in its current form dates from 2005, when it was substantially enlarged to house the newly discovered Zeugma mosaics.

Where to stay in Gaziantep

In Gaziantep you can wander the narrow-laned old town, with its old stone houses, just steps from your hotel. Because many of the old houses and their large interior courtyards have survived for decades, they now house museums, cafes, hotels, and inns. Surrounding the Old Town is a collection of moderately priced three- and four-star hotels. The city is well known for its food culture, restaurants, baklava bakeries, and bustling bazaars, so you'll want to stay close to the downtown core to experience that atmosphere. If budget is concern, look to the few guesthouses and hostels in the city, although they are a little removed from the central area.
