This was a medresse originally and now it's a museum with various Islamic artefacts from different eras. There are examples of carved stonework. The entrance is spectacular with a unique design of calligraphy carved into the stone. It's a fairly plain building inside.

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.
