mainly archeological findings from the Seljuk periode. In some room there was no light. Very little information about the objects. Could be improved.

Konya was the capital of Selchukian Empire before being part of the Ottoman Empire. They are very proud of that and you learn a lot about the Selchukians. In Ince Minare Musuem there are examples of Architectural examples of Selchukian times.

This Seljuk style building is worth seeing but be sure to step inside, you can find many historical remains exhibited here. The remains of Seljuk era are full of interets! There are still some elements of pre-Islam ( animals or birds figures, the human face ) in Seljuk remains. Worth seeing. And the dome is breathtakingly beautiful!

This is one of the best museum in Turkey and it is amazing Seljuks work from 1200 and I very appreciate to government efforts to preserve historical great Architectural art work for next generation. There is timing to visit this museum but entry ticket is cheap. I recommend to those person who love historical and Architectural art work.

This is surely one of the most important centers of Seljuks, which was a madrasa. Now a small but a nice museum to get a perspective of madrasa architecture and some beautiful tiles.

The museum is very small but beautifully presented. The collection is very interesting and of great quality. The entrance is magnificent. If you are in Konya it won't take you much time and you will be very satisfied with the visit.

There are only two nice things about this museum: the big imposing door, and the main hall once you enter is big and bright. Everything else is a somewhat boring: a bunch of stones and woodwork laid out under lights, with occasional one line labels saying what each piece is. Not really much in terms of information to engage your... More
