It was the first time experience for me to visit such an unusual type of museum. It is very interesting, informative, educational and well kept. Has great displays with wax figures, presenting how the process of healing and teaching was conducted in past. The museum consists of three parts: hospital, school for medical students and mosque complex with gardens. Must... More

First of, get a taxi from the city you get there. Locals think it is a 10 min walk, but it is not! The place is a combination of a very well designed and kept mosque, court and medical school from the Ottoman era. It is children friendly and enables people from all ages to learn and spend quality time.... More

It did not sound attractive when I read about it in the web before the visit. Surprisingly, we love our trip to Health Museum. It was very informative and covers an important aspect of life during the Ottoman Empire - Health The presentation of the information was very interesting. Even my children 12, 9, 4 and 2 were not bored.... More

This award winning attraction shows with authentic displays and documentation the sophistication and progress of the health treatments I during the reign of ottoman sultan Beyazid 11. Leave plenty of time to see all the displays and to read all the information which traces the history of medical science at this time.

The historical hospital was used for healing mental illness by different musical instruments. It also gives information about the development of medical science in that region as well as school life of medical students. It is a mosque and school complex and has a great garden.

Originally build to heal patients by Ottoman Sultan Beyazid II. It is very interesting to look at the rooms where there are presentation of how the patients were healed at that time. It is only 3 km. from the city center.
