A nice city museum right at the center of Bursa.

Lots of things to learn about the history of Bursa. A little amateur somehow, but still worth a visit to feel the ambience of the recent past.

This is an interesting museum with several cleverly designed exhibits about Bursa's history. An excellent textile collection upstairs.

Was pleasantly surprised on the well displayed items in the Museum. Very well organized and easy to get through. Small cafe inside to relax at the end of the visit. Could use some English descriptions on the plaques.

A typical Turkish museum with an extensive and interesting collection of artifacts. The ethnographic section is of particular interest

Unfortunately there's very little regarding Bursa's glorious ancient past, but once you get past that, the museum is very good, especially the shop recreations on the lower floor, and Zeki Murren's flamboyant jackets. More information in English would be great, but it's very cheap and makes a great stroll anyway.

This is an excellent Museum and you need time to go to each floor and examine every part. I assure you will come out well informed about the heritage and culture of Bursa. You will learn so much about the rituals and way of life in the ancient times. However you need a good guide to explain about this magnificent... More

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.
