For Turkey, where unfortunately the museum sector has not yet learnt to give enough attention and care to its exhibiting skills, Bursa City Museum is definitely a must see and top of its league. We especially fell in love with the ground floor.

We made the mistake of going around without an audio guide as we didn't realise there was very little translation. Still found it very interesting! Modern exhibits (1900's)take up the majority of the museum rather than the ottoman era ones.

The manager of the lovely hotel (Kitap Evi) where I stayed mentioned this museum and I wandered in as I happened to be passing, I thought it would be a good way to spend half an hour before lunch - I came out three hours later !! Very well set out with some fascinating exhibits and a most interesting area... More

We stumbled onto the Bursa City Museum just by chance and were very impressed by the detailed information that was on display - for only 3 lira! You could learn about the entire history of the town and the displays were excellent. You even got a free cup of tea or turkish coffee.

You need time to examine every floor and every part. It has very rich comprehensive concepts about the history, culture, nature of Bursa. You will have been lighten about the rituals and the past daily life. However, the language of explanations need to be in English beside in Turkish.
