  • I never thought I was going when I come to Gaziantep, when I walked in, I'm glad I came to a beautiful Museum I said. Necessarily have to be seen and.

  • Zeugma, the level of civilization we now actually is much more up Bc showing the masterpiece. Southeastern Anatolia is one of the must-see places.

  • The Zeugma Museum is very valuable to Gaziantep. I have experienced it by known and wanted to watch local it me very nice Museum in a central location. The Museum was rebuilt I think very clean indeed. The Zeugma mosaic was found underwater and exhibited in the Museum very nice in any case. When you're in Gaziantep one should look at even that.

  • no need to explain, just go and see... :) gidin ve görün...
  • The building is modern and has an overall nice exterior. The entrance fee is 10 TRY, which is honestly fairly good for what you get. This is the world's largest mosaic museum, but don't expect it to blow you away completely. The exhibits are well displayed and there are quite a few of them. Sadly, many of the mosaics are incomplete and some are just bits and pieces. If you're in Gaziantep, i recommend you visit this place.
  • Really enjoyed the history and the museum. You must experience it because it is a must do tour.
  • Impresive part of Ancient History. I liked it a lot. Ticket 15 TL.
  • Excellent museum!
