This is a fascinating museum made especially to house the mosaics found whilst a damp was being developed. Saving them from the waters. The C2nd to C4th Greek works depict everything from the classic god through to the early signs of Christianity. The large space really brought me close to the peoples who made the art.

There is a great collection of mosaics here, some are completely intact while others in various states of incomplete condition. Note that the collection will be expanding (no date was given) as they were installing additional mosaics in an adjacent building. Photography is allowed. Allow 1 to 1.5hrs visiting.

A great museum displaying beautiful mosaics uncovered from the ancient city of Zeugma. The plaques provide great commentary on the mosaics. Spend around 2 hrs here.

If you ever come to Gaziantep for a visit, either traveling or for business, this is a place you shouldn't miss. The Gypsy Girl especially displayed in the museum is the highlight of your visit. Despite of the Gypsy Girl, there are also many other mosaics that are incredibly beautiful to observe. I've personally been to this museum 4 times... More

A beautiful collection of mosaics, mostly from Zeugma. The collection is displayed in a very nice way and there are some interactive pieces as well. Seeing the incredible artistry from the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD was just mind boggling. As I kept repeating, "This was made with ROCKS!" Definitely worth a trip!!

The Zeugma museum holds a gorgeous collection of Roman(?) mosaics, many from the Euphrates river region just to the east of Gaziantep. On the lower level you can walk among the mosaics and from the upper level you can either take in the view from the balcony or see the famous "gypsy girl" mosaic. The museum is beautifully done, very... More

The museum is situated just behind main railway station so it is easy to reach it by walking from the city center. It is a big, quite new building. Entrance ticket is 15 Turkish lira and is very cheap for what you can see in the museum. Besides the famous mosaic of the Gypsy Girl, there are dozens of other... More
