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.

Was pleasantly surprised on the well displayed items in the Museum. Very well organized and easy to get through. Small cafe inside to relax at the end of the visit. Could use some English descriptions on the plaques.

A typical Turkish museum with an extensive and interesting collection of artifacts. The ethnographic section is of particular interest

Unfortunately there's very little regarding Bursa's glorious ancient past, but once you get past that, the museum is very good, especially the shop recreations on the lower floor, and Zeki Murren's flamboyant jackets. More information in English would be great, but it's very cheap and makes a great stroll anyway.
