“The best valuable mosaics dating A.C. 1 !!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Wonderful museum... wonderful historical mosaics... I think this museum should be visited after visiting the Zeugma town, which is very near, only half an hour drive...

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Amazing for the number, size, and presentation of the mosaics. When we were there there was an interesting small exhibition on fashion upstairs.

“old mosaics in very new environment”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I had the chance in business context to visit before it opens and now went back to see the finished products and it looks great. You can at an additional cost of 3 TRY pp first see a 3D movie situating the sites and history. Not indispensable but nicely done. The museum has a lot of place and uses it to fully value the mosaics, the most famous being the "Gipsy Girl". There are throughout the museum some touch screen based applications that are either games for the kids (filling for ex the missing mosaic stones), or give a further background and explanation about the pieces. Warmly recommended, along a big road, with in front of it a few parking places (sufficient when we visited).

“My favorite museum in Turkey”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Wow... I think this is the best designed museum in Turkey. Much better than Antioch Mosaic Museum. Just for this museum you should go to Gaziantep and then stay for the food, too. The whole city has great food.

“Worths to travel Gaziantep just for it”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I have been there several times and will again definitely since this one of the best museums in Turkey and probably the best mosaic museum in the World. Don't miss it, be sure that you will miss more than you think. Gypsy Girl is the treasure of this but bronze sculpture of Mars is unbelievably beautiful, you can spent your time just watching it. This is not a museum for looking its pictures from the internet, this is a place to go and see for everyone because of its atmosphere.
