It is one of the best city museums in Turkey. Lot of information well displayed about the historical and cultural background of the lovely city Gaziantep. I recommend it to both foreign and Turkish tourists.

If you visit Gaziantep without doing any research on it (like I did), the Bayazhan Gaziantep City Museum is a great place to start on your first day. I wouldn't go to it at the end of the trip (or if you already have some kind of guidebook); it would be largely pointless. There are informational displays divided up by... More

Bayazhan is a historical building you should visit in Gaziantep. I hope this review is not out of place- it is going to be about the restaurant at Bayazhan. I enjoyed the food at the restaurant but I was very surprised when the bill came! Instead of placing bottles of water on our table and charging us for that, they... More

One feels this was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce; it is unabashedly self promoting. That said for the price of one lira, it was worth it. You are given an audio guide in the language of your choice, which automatically ( usually) clicks onto the rooms' selection. Lots of interesting facts about the agricultural and commercial output of the... More

before going anywhere in gaziantep go this little nice museum located in an old antep mansion. I really loved this nice mansion and museum very much. the entrance fee is only one turkish lira, which is almost gratis. after visiting the museum you can have something in the courtyard of this old mansion.

Great little museum in the heart of Gaziantep. A nice place to spend an hour or two. A bit tired in appearance and difficult to find (as are most museums in Antep) but surely worth a visit if you are in the area. Lots of very interesting stories and Antep history portrayed with life-size displays and artifacts. Be sure to... More
