Firstly, this doll and heritage museum is not in Urgup but is in the village of Mustafapasa, about 6km to the south.
We took a taxi from Urgup- about 50 to return and the cabbie waited for us! He didn't know where the museum was and it is woefully signposted. We did a full circuit of the very charming old town which is well worth a visit in itself. No luck. We asked various officials but they had no idea. Being persistent we asked the supervisor of the other attraction, the church (10tl each- don't waste your money) who told us to walk 200 m south and then double back up a hill. It felt like we were leaving town but then, there it was!
It is a harming little museum stuffed with dolls dressed in various costumes of history. Soldiers, firemen, street hawkers and so on. One room is preserved as a 19c bedroom. There is a terrace with fantastic views and a little cafe. There was hardly anyone there, the polar opposite of the previous day swarming with the hoards at the Goreme Open Air Museum.
Our guide was charm personified and she was proud to give us a whistlestop tour of the exhibits.
Not worth travelling across the globe to visit but well worth it if you have a spare half day and you are staying in the Urgup area.
