Ruin Art Museum
Zeugma Mozaik Muzesi exhibits the Roman floor mosaics discovered in an ancient town reputedly founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals. The museum features 1,700 sq m (18,300 sq ft) of the colorful, intricate designs. Of particular note are mosaic scenes depicting a gypsy girl and the birth of Venus. Watch the film at the entrance to learn about the history of the ancient city. Head to the second floor for the best views of nearly complete mosaics retrieved from Roman villas before the site was flooded. Modern interactive displays, music, and lighting bring these historical pieces back to life.

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.

  • One of the most important museums in Turkey, foundings are unique and dates back to ac 1st to 4th centuries, must visit when you are in Antep
  • A wonderfull museum to visit... The biggrst mosaic museum...
  • Mosaics are great & outstanding.. everyone should see this museum
  • 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.
  • no need to explain, just go and see... :) gidin ve görün...
