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.

This museum would make a good add-on to a tour of Konya. Although it's too small to be a destination in and of itself, it has some excellent examples of Selcuk stone carvings and tablets, and quite a bit of the signage is in English, so you actually know what you're seeing even if your Turkish is poor. Entry is... More

This is a good follow-up to a visit to the actual site east of Konya. Otherwise it's of marginal interest. The fact that these items are truly from a neolithic period reminds you that pottery is a very old craft.

This is a rather small museum with some fine greek/roman items. We were the only visitors and did not have to pay to get in. One man in fact had to unlock the door and switch on the lights. We asked for and got a free museum brochure. This had some photos and unfortunately only text in turkish. The staff... More
