There are museums and then there's Zeugma Mosaic Museum. The museography is fantastic. The information is well delivered, well organized and clear even for non museum or antique art enthusiasts. A must for every visitor to Gaziantep or even those visiting eastern Turkey.

Extensive collection of amazing mosaics attractively displayed. In many case the explanations (English and Turkish) give captivating back stories for specific mosaics. Even if you're museum-weary, you should seek out this museum across the railroad tracks.

Amazing museum - certainly one of the really high spots of my whole tour of Turkey. Please don't think that this is just "another boring museum" - it's not. Could have spent hours there. Incredible mosaics, beautifully displayed.

This museum not only has an extraordinary collection of mosaics, it displays them in a way that one can imagine looking at them rooms of Roman villas in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The atmosphere created makes this visit a memorable experience. The labels are very informative and the English translations are good. This museum is reason enough to make... More

This was one of the best museums I've been so far. Well at least one of my favorites. Mosaics are beautiful. Some original artifacts like columns and fountains are included in exhibition too, what brings up very special atmosphere. For some mosaics you can unravel their stories, what they represented, what this contributed to our perceptions of that times and... More

The museum hosts mosaic from the 2nd to 3rd centuries from the ancient city of Zeugma. The "smaller" pieces are hung on the walls while the larger ones are presented on the floor. The featured mosaic, the Gypsy Girl, is presented in a special room on the upper floor. The quality, number, and size of mosaic is impressive. The exhibition... More

It was a privilege to see such magnificent mosaics from the 2nd to 5th century AD that have been saved . Allow at least 1.5 hours to wander around the room size mosacics. A 3D movie and audio guide are available at extra cost.

This purpose-built museum to house the Zeugma mosaics was opened in 2012. It is sleek, spacious and modern. The mosaics are room-sized - as they were the floors of rooms in very large villas and soooo beautiful. This museum alone is a reason to go to Gazientep - although not the only reason. We thought it was a wonderful city!
