There are way too many museums in Antep and very few of them are good. This one is among the moderately acceptable ones. It's about the traditional culinary culture of the city. It's quite small but informative. Yet, all the information is in Turkish, there are no explanations in English, so it hardly appeals to international tourists. It takes around... More

This museum describes you the history of wonderful Gaziantep meals. You will have the opportunity to see traditional equipment for cooking, watch the movie about how to cook several meals, buy spices in here. It's only 1 TL for entrance.

This interesting museum provides both information and inspiration for exploring Gaziantep's terrific eateries. English-language translations are key ingredients in the museum's successful recipe of explaining what dishes to try in local restaurants.

We went along because the idea seemed so unusual and because Gazientep is renowned for its food. Set in a delightful old house, it gives a wonderful introduction to different aspects of Turkish domestic customs. Like the rest of Gaziantep, well worth a visit. There's a kitchen but on this visit nothing being cooked.

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)
