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

If you love archaeology and sarcophagi, this is a great experience. Otherwise, give this one a miss. The best part of this museum was the security guard, who was clearly irritated when we arrived at 4, even though the museum closed at five. He threw open the door, and dramatically turned on the lights. Then 20 minutes later he came... More

This small museum has very interesting artefacts, but I wish there was a bit more effort put toward their presentation. They offer a nice brochure at entrance. The visist is well worth the 3TL entrance fee.

Do not be put off by the somewhat shabby exterior of this small museum, you will find much to interest you inside. Once through the doors you are greeted by some of the finest carved sarcophagi I have ever seen - the carving is beautiful! If you are in Konya to visit Çatalhöyük then you need to come to the...

Well worth a visit, especially if you are in Konya to visit Catalhoyuk as some of the discoveries from the dig is on display at the museum.

The Konya Archaeological Museum is small and pleasant to visit. On one of the sacrophagi you see a very early representation of a crucifixion - perhaps the earliest.

This small gem displays a variety of artifacts date back to 7,000 BC which are very interesting. It's a small museum so we can take our time to admire in detail the amazing tools, jewellery, statutes, decorations etc made by human beings lived 9,000 years ago! Some of the very clever concepts they used are still being applied today. The... More
