I really enjoyed the museum. It really was the high point of our visit to Bursa. The museum was a macrocosm of everything Bursa had to offer throughout history.

Although the entrance fee of 5 TL is very cheap, it's more expensive than the City Museum (2 TL), while it doesn't really offer any surprises. There are very few texts to read - at least they are in English - and the objects are labelled in a very superficial manner. But as this museum is directly located next to... More

The museum is more about the tools and crafts of ordinary folks than about the pieces of artists. One could find clothes worn by nomads, dervishes, carpets, nicely crafted ornaments dating centuries. The museum also has an extensive coin collection. It was interesting to observe the rows of coins coming from the 13th century Ottoman Turkey all the way to... More

I had high expectations about these museum, but they were not met. The building itself is beautiful, very close to the Green Mosque, but the museum it self had not so many pieces and looked very abandoned. We were the only ones inside for the whole time we stayed there. The 5 TL are worth only for the architecture.

This museum is housed in a most attractive 15th century medersa connected with Yeşil Camii. In successive rooms around its large courtyard are displayed rooms of ancient ceramics, calligraphy & bookbinding, metal work, etc. The medersa has some interesting tombstones outside, and there is a nearby row of small "antique shops" to browse.

Went here hoping to cool off from the 100+ degree day, and to have something in a cool cafe. No, no cafe, and not air-conditioned. If you can bear up, you'll enjoy the exhibits.

There is no entrance fee. Very small museum but should be seen as it's a part of the Green Mosque-Tomb complex.
