A small museum but well laid out, with explanations in Turkish and English. What was a private house, around a small courtyard, with every room now dedicated to a different aspect of local food, from storage to picnics. Good lists of herbs and spices and what they are used for. For anyone interested in food, this is well worth a... More

The museum is located at the beginning of the "Culture Road" (also behind the castle) in Gaziantep so it is nice to visit this place while you are on your city tour. You can see traditional cooking tools and habits of Antep. You might be surprised by the variety of Antep food. (They have 291 different meal patents)

A culinary museum? Yes! Such fun to see this place that was once a home and was converted into a museum dedicated to food! I live in Istanbul and am not easily impressed but this place is fun, informative, and filled with tools and implements that underscore the commonalities all nations share: cooking!

This surprise find needs the respect it deserves. This combination of culinary museum and training facilities gives the visitor a chance to understand the traditions of the culinary 'art'. The descriptive panels are very helpful to provide the context behind the traditions. A personal familial presentation that helps the visitor appreciate. Good place for foodies to visit.

This is a very small museum in a lovely renovated old house. If you are already in the old city, it's worth stopping just to see the house. The entry fee is only 1 TL. The museum itself is ok - nothing special. There is English translation. Museums are closed on Monday.
