  • A decent museum, however had it not been included with the price of the Archaeology museum next door, I doubt we'd have gone in. The museum has dioramas set up of various time periods in the Izmir...

  • certainly not at grand or fancy as huge Western museums, but so much history, love, and solid research. it’s a small museum, coving artifacts and history from about the Bronze Age through the Roman Empire period of Anatolia. they provide so much cultural context, too. i will go back next week to draw some sketches.
  • At the start shows the Hitties existed, but when the Biblical history book mentioned them, historians thought it was all wrong as it was the only refferance to the Hitties. Now we know we can put faith (evidenced based) in the Bible.
  • Fascinating collection with info in English. Only the Archeological museum was open to due renovations at ethnography museum. They have a beautiful copper statue, some neolithic and early bronze age ceramics, coins used in western anatolia from ancient to modern times, as well as some mosaics. Worth the 25 lira entry!
  • A must visit location of this city, although the underground was closed when i was there but for the rest it was quite nice and informative. One additionnal thing that the place lacks is a restauration area where you can get a drink or some snacks but for the most part, my experience was good and i would recommend it.
  • The archeological museum of Izmir has a huge collection of artifacts from bronze, Greek, Roman and Ottoman eras in different sections
