Goreme Museum is an open air museum where you get an insight into how people lived in the volcanic landscape and those weird structures where man took refuge all thsoe years ago. It is a must visit if you are in Cappadocia.

It costs 45TL to get into the open Air museum. It’s worth the price as the money goes to preserving that beautiful area. However, I was a bit shocked to find out you had to pay an extra 15TL per person to enter one of...More

The frescos in the walls are unique. The museum is something special. Totally worth it. The entrance to the dark church is not included in the prices but is cheap (15 liras) I recommend to do it.l, it has the best paintings.

Going to Cappadocia and not visiting these caves is like not visiting Capadoccia. Pure history of Christianity. A city made of caves, including classrooms and temples.
