“Good overview of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This museum has a good English headphone commentary and gives a full and interesting overview of the city and its history. Worth visiting to find out about Gaziantep and its surroundings

“Great addition to the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Well worth the visit especially after moving from the old small museum. Great displays although they have add-ons like apps to explore which costs more.

“Not really worth the bother.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

If this is the only museum you are going to visit in Turkey, then go ahead, but really it has very little to offer. The main thing I wanted to see were the mosaics from Zeugma, but they have all been moved to their own facility, leaving a small, and not very well presented collection of pottery and weaponry.

“Valuable artefacts, but poor condition”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

The museum is relatively small and will take you about 30min to see. It holds very old pieces from the region, but the collection is small and not presented well. Don't forget to see the pieces in the garden.

“Not Much There”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

This was the former site of the famed Zeugma mosaics which have been moved to their own special museum. There is not much left here. But it is close to the city center and was worth a trip just to see some of the lovely statuary. I understand the facility is being refurbished to house other items since the removal of the mosaics.
