    The Museum exhibited a large number of handmade baby and, of course, it's all manual labor. Special events in history with a doll dramatize studied. But the intention and purpose of the Museum is becoming a little more professional. First, babies need to explain which issues are handled by inadequate illumination, description is insufficient, and only after all the English written in Turkish. Showing you one of the Museum's operators but are not necessary while description. The famous personality described in infants should be typed names, though it is not very possible to understand the person walking. A room of a museum some of the family, the rest of the stuff around like a place where istiflendiği should be a little more understanding of editing appropriately, but museums. The entrance fee is too high for this place. Name make Museum of art and history of people going with a little more discerning, a doll museum, or the Museum could be more appropriate than a name like baby tragacanth.

    The atmosphere of the spellbinding. Here, everything breathes history. Early Christian churches with frescoes. Cosy markets with unusual souvenirs at affordable prices. Fabulous panoramas! Nothing of the kind had not previously seen. Clearly these places are worth a visit while in Turkey. I would like more time to enjoy all the beauty of these places.

  • Even though we didn't come all the way is open, with a closed Museum at the specified time. When we reached the authorities by phone as if we can't find a relative in the House from vahlı tühlü a reply. Now the next time they talk like it's been even between us. If you want to go before the phone would recommend achievement surely.
