This is a small museum but the 3rd century CE Roman sarcophagus with carvings showing the labours of Hercules is the jewel in the crown. Well worth a visit. Also has some artefacts from Catalhoyuk but having visited the site itself I felt these this aspect to be poorly curated.

This museum is a bit old and small, but I wanted to see the famous sarcophagus of Roman era. Very glad to take photos of them! There were not many visitors so I was able to see quietly. As I can speak Turkish, the staff showed me around the museum and explained the brief history of Konya, too. There is... More

This museum has some fantastic Sarcophagi, however the rest of the museum is not that spectacular. The building is also pretty old and the displays a little dated. There are plans to move the collection to a new (to be built) building, in the near future.

It was really hard to find the place and not too many people spoke English but we finally found it in an obscure, very unassuming neighborhood. Despite the heat and the walk from the old town it was worth the visit. It is set in a small building with a partially vine covered garden. They have remarkable pieces of Roman... More

Find is the operative word here. We finally resorted to a taxi. There was a handout sheet in English with basic information and most exhibits do have English labelling. In addition to the exterior courtyard, there are just two rooms, the first housing an impressive collection of Roman sarcophagi, statuary and marble mosaics. We went primarily to see artifacts from... More

If you see nothing else in Konya, you must visit this museum. It has artifacts dating back to 6000BC including Hercules tomb..... it is relatively small so doesn't take up a lot of your time. Ancient skeletons, perfectly preserved...... and only 5tl to visit. Parking available right outside on street.
