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

Dating back to 5th and 6th century A.C the museum holds mosaics originating from the Roman and Late Antique Periods. "Gypsy Girl" is the most important piece and is on the secınd floor of the museum. It is very close to Halil Usta so after/before visiting the museum you can have the famous "kusleme kebabi".

We loved the museum. The mosaics are only some of the panels archaeologist were able to salvaged from Aslantepe before the area was flooded - now Birecki Dam. Don't miss the Gypsy Girl, the original is placed in a dark room where you enter through a darkened hallway. A copy, part of a lage panel is just a photograph to... More

This museum has a large, beautifully laid out display of mosaics from the Roman town of Zeugma. Many are very large and intricate with figures of everyday life, mythology etc and with beautiful geometric borders.

The museum opened only 3 years ago and replaces the already nice section in the archeological museum. From 500m2 it went up to 2.000m2 of mosaics exhibited... since this year there is a new (but less "must see") section of mosaics from churches. The Roman mosaics belong to the top quality of what can be seen from ancient times! We... More
