It was really hard to find the place and not too many people spoke English but we finally found it in an obscure, very unassuming neighborhood. Despite the heat and the walk from the old town it was worth the visit. It is set in a small building with a partially vine covered garden. They have remarkable pieces of Roman... More

Find is the operative word here. We finally resorted to a taxi. There was a handout sheet in English with basic information and most exhibits do have English labelling. In addition to the exterior courtyard, there are just two rooms, the first housing an impressive collection of Roman sarcophagi, statuary and marble mosaics. We went primarily to see artifacts from... More

If you see nothing else in Konya, you must visit this museum. It has artifacts dating back to 6000BC including Hercules tomb..... it is relatively small so doesn't take up a lot of your time. Ancient skeletons, perfectly preserved...... and only 5tl to visit. Parking available right outside on street.

As other reviewers have noted, the museum is small, but the collection of sarcophagi and other ancient artifacts makes it worth a visit. A guide might make the visit more educational, as the limited explanations for the works are insufficient to allow for a full appreciation of what is being displayed.

There are several excavation sites around Konya and the findings are displayed in this small but tidy museum. But the explanations are inadequate. You'll need Internet to get the real taste of the exhibition.

We did have to pay, and wait for the guard to turn on the lights. Nice collection of 3rd century Roman sarcophagi. Best was the artifacts from the nearby dig at Çatalhöyük. 9000 year old stuff is way cool. Appreciated that attempt was made to add English to the signage.

This small museum have artefacts from a range of cultures. The Romans, the Hittites, byzantine and ottoman. There are wonderful sarcophagi and ceramics, but the most interesting things for me was the artefacts from Çatalhöyük. I like the simple building and displays that allow the artefacts to speak for them self. Definitely worth a trip, but not in itself.
