“A bit of this and that”
Review of Mardin Museum

Mardin Museum
Ranked #5 of 17 things to do in Mardin
Attraction details
Reviewed December 29, 2012

An old building with lots of pottery and ethnographic displays throughout. Some of which were interesting, but as all of Mardin it is the architecture that stands out.

When we visited, the museum was being renovated. We thought it was too small to be worth a visit. Maybe after renovation that will have changed.

The building itself was worth the small admission fee. It is a former Christian monastery and is quite lovely. There were a few nice items from Seljuk times. If you are in the center of Mardin and have a bit of time to spare, this is a nice thing to do. Otherwise, don't go out of your way.

Mardin Museum, housing regional archeological and etnographic artifacts from prehistoric era to 20th century serves in a very attractive building. The building was built as a Syriac Catholic Church Patriarchate and the stone craftsmanship is excuisite.
More ethnographic objects are on display on the first floor where as very impressive archeological objects excavated in the region are on the second floor.
The museum is in the old city center and public transportation of all sorts is available plus the old city is better by foot anyway. Open everyday except Monday's , no air conditioning but the stone buildings are usually cooler . I have not seen a wheelchiar access and do not believe there is a lift but you may ask.There are also many activities held on the entrance level conference center.

The museum could have used better explantion about the objects at display.

Along with Sabanci Mardin City Museum , this muesum is very important to get an idea about the history and culture of the region.
