The museum is more about the tools and crafts of ordinary folks than about the pieces of artists. One could find clothes worn by nomads, dervishes, carpets, nicely crafted ornaments dating centuries. The museum also has an extensive coin collection. It was interesting to observe...More

Went here hoping to cool off from the 100+ degree day, and to have something in a cool cafe. No, no cafe, and not air-conditioned. If you can bear up, you'll enjoy the exhibits.

There is no entrance fee. Very small museum but should be seen as it's a part of the Green Mosque-Tomb complex.
