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 small museum in Gaziantep is located in the old city near the castle and will give you a good idea of the history of Turkish cuisine and traditions. The museum is in an old house that has been renovated and the displays are good. Although the video that runs are in Turkish it is enjoyable and one do manage... More

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.

It is a pity there is not more English in this quaint museum. The video was worth watching but would have been improved with subtitles. Local identities are featured showing off the local cuisine.

The building is lovely, the museum is small, but interesting. Fun to visit if you have the time and are a foodie. Lots of photos of local dishes (text in Turkish).

It only cost 1 TL to get in, so I'd definitely suggest it. I found the museum to be average though. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think it was good value for money. However, if you don't have too much time, you should skip it.
