This museum is not to be missed. If Gaziantep is not on your itinerary, I would recommend a special journey, just to visit this museum. This museum is well lit and the manner in which the mosaics are displayed is spectacular. It is also well worth while to visit the site of Zeugma, not far from Gaziantep. Most of Zeugma... More

I had no idea that I would step into such a fabulous museum. The array of mosaics on display is brilliant, the museum is well laid out, modern and not crowded (what a bonus). Be warned tickets are single use so when you get to the top floor you need to walk across to the second building over the walkway... More

What to call the ancient land that is Turkey today? Most scholars settle for "Anatolia", although that means "east" and, so, is a Greek/European reference point. Fact is that long before the Turks invaded and made their own in the land named for them today, the place was the home to a number of astonishing civilisations, from the lesser known... More

i can't believe how they preserve the ancient stones. Perfect place to visit. If you are in Antep you have to go there. Don't forget to see the Gipsy..

Beautiful museum, with an excellent and astounding collection of mosaics. Beautifully lit and the explanations next to the mosaics are both in Turkish and English, and provide interesting information. Really a worthwhile visit.

This was the reason we stopped in Gaziantep and it was well worth it. The range and scale of the mosaics is incredible, and the chance to admire them all in one place is very convenient! It is located on the D-400, the main highway through the city so easy to reach by car, and I imagine by taxi as... More

This is a wonderful small museum of Zeugma mosaics. The mosaics are beautiful. It is a quiet and calm place where you can enjoy the antique beauties. Marvelous pieces of mosaics that you can not find anywhere else in Turkey, even in Antakya mosaic museum. It is a must. The only scculptre in the museum is the bronze statue of... More

When I read a description of this museum as having "the world's best mosaic collection", I was a bit skeptical. However, the Zeugma Mosaic Museum lives up to the billing and more. Opened in 2012, this museum is laid out very well and has an incredible number of complete mosaics. The way they are displayed allows the visitor to experience... More
