  • Due to restoration, half of the museum and castle is closed. Also no explanation is written on artifacts. Shame for Turkey, my beloved country.
  • i do not know if this museum is as great as they say but when visited almost all the museum was closed for restoration (well these things happen). But i payed an expensive ticket just for a small walk in the castle
