The newly built museum is no longer at the Gunduz Street. The collection has been taken to a larger building at Antakya Reyhanli Yolu (Antakya Reyhanli Street). Busses with number 15 go to the new Hatay Museum. Get off at Iskur stop. You will see the it. The price for the bus is 1,75.

a place to leisurely travel through the millennia of Antioch's area. The building is new, the museography very weel designed. And the freedom to walk around without a crowd.

I had been to the old museum many years ago. Now they have moved to a beautiful new setting. It is much larger, and there is so much to see! They have done a very nice job with the new setting, and more is to come. We were told there are still thousands of items still to be displayed! You... More

The Antakya Archaeological Museum is new and bright and a great museum. They have many great objects on display from Paleolithic to Islamic periods. The highlight of the collections are the mosaics mostly Roman. They stand out as some of the finest I have ever seen. They are also displayed very well. More importantly the museum does a great job... More

I really enjoyed learning more about the history of this ancient region. The mosaics are breath-taking, but I was bothered by the lack of specifically Christian mosaics for a city with such a profound and wonderful Christian heritage. Many of the translations into English are poor, including one that refers to a certain "Jesus Chris". Nonetheless, they are comprehensible. A... More

One of the top museums of Turkey and a must-do in Hatay if not a reason to travel there altogether! The museum moved to a new location -dubious in architectural style but much better for effective display of its oustanding collection. Many will only come for the amazingly preserved mosaics of Selucia, but while these are truly outstanding, and alone... More

The museum was new so some parts were not yet open. The mosaics were fascinating and the historical exhibits back to the paliolithic times were interesting
