The displays where very nice, especially the depiction of different crafts in the basement. Be aware though, all explanations are in Turkish only! The entrance fee is only 2TL, an absolute bargain. I would definitely recommend to pay this museum a visit.

If you're coming to Bursa and would like to know a bit more about the city's history, then the City Museum is a must see. It costs around $2.00 to get in and is very nicely put together.

You can get a climpse on Bursa's history (and culture) at this place, Ottoman newspapers and local singers included. Unfortunately it's all in Turkish, but for only 2 Liras - give it a try.

Lots of things to learn about the history of Bursa. A little amateur somehow, but still worth a visit to feel the ambience of the recent past.

This is an interesting museum with several cleverly designed exhibits about Bursa's history. An excellent textile collection upstairs.
