Took a short trip from Ankara - visited the museum and it was very enjoyable! We had seen a similar museum in Safranbolu which had static mannequins. The emphasis on doing some active traditional skills is interesting whether you participate or simply watch. The house...More

Great effort invested in renovation and preservation of Turkish architecture, crafts and culture, however, there is room for improvement, especially in the are of catering foreigners not speaking Turkish. Costumes and storytelling is great, but only if you understand it. :-)

This is one of the best options to see local lifestyle in Beypazarı. The entrance fees are 6 TL for adults and 5 TL for students which include free entrance to Turkish bath museum. There are no English explanations though.

This is a small museum where you can learn the daily life of the people living in a rich mansion of a small Anatolian city. You can spend half an hour in here but you should not expect to much.
