This museum has only been established for a few years and is located away from the city centre. It holds a remarkable collection of mosaics from the Roman city of Zeugma on the Euphrates, salvaged before the site was flooded by a new dam. The mosaics are laid out in a exemplary way and there is a very good video... More

If you are interested in the art of mosaics it's a must see, quite big and fun. The gift shop are good but the prices little bit high and the entry is ten Turkish lira

A must see place in Turkey, especially if you are in Gaziantep. Unbelievable, great mosaics from thousands years ago. Get an audio guide and enjoy the amazing mosaics..

You must save half a day to see this nice museum if you are interested in anatolian history in Roman times. Very aesthetic persentation of the mosaics; though it would be better to have an opnion about the archeological processes; e.g. videos or photos about how they were found and resurfaced.

In case you are deeply interested in mosaics, then Zeugma Museum is a must see for you. Though personally, I like more the mosaic museum of Antakya (I find it cosier and it's definitely richer in terms of variety as it covers a larger geographic area), I have to confess Zeugma is much more modern in terms of museology. And... More

What's on display is so amazing, as well as alot of the museum techniques used. However, the devil is hidden in the details and this museum always flops in the details, with lack of some information that could easily be provided, the attitude of personnel, lack of supervision, etc. What should be an unforgettable experience leaves you with awe in...

Close by to Gaziantep overlooking the Euphrates River, the wealthy Romans of the second century build villas. Unearthed a number of years ago these villas contained absolutely stunning mosaic decorations, floor and wall coverings and statues. These have been unearthed, and are now housed in a stunningly beautiful museum on the outskirts of the city. Best museum I've seen in... More

This museum is located in the suburb area of Gaziantep. It's better to take a taxi to get there. And due to the location, there are few visitors and it's good to look around. Since it opens at 9, It's preferred to visit early-opening places first if you are in a hurry schedule. It's worthy of visiting and well-maintained. The... More
