A beautiful, modern structure with amazing,preserved large mosaics----some laid out on the floor, others on the walls. Good overall views from the balcony and great photo ops. Only problem is finding the elevators and exits. Nice areas to relax and have refreshments under the covered sitting areas outdoors.

A spacious state of the art museum. Everything written in English, and the audio guide provides interesting details about almost each mosaic and item ( also i rarely see ipods used as audio guides). Impressive mosaics and interesting stories about greek mythology. Would always recommend if you are in the city. It's best to go their by taxi or car... More

An excellent museum. It's mosaics, most of which were excavated from the ancient Roman city site of Zeugma are beautiful. I was amazed at the vibrant colors that remained in mosaics that are so very old.

Beautifully presented art and beliefs with helpful description. I am embarrassed to say that after days of going round many actual sites under the baking sun - this was a comfortable way to concentrate on the essence of their finest works. An absolute must see. The clarity of how they depicted important mythological stories is to be respected. To think... More

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.
