If you are interested in history and archeology, it is worth to visit to Yassihoyuk. It is quite impressive. There are museum, tumulus, and the remnant of the ancient city.

So, Alexander was in Turkey when he slew the famous knot. This museum nicely unties the story. Also contains items typical of the era so browsing is pleasant. Small but focused museum. Time left to ready your copy of Bitter Tea !!
