This was the old archaeological museum of Gaziantep, but it is moved to its new building which is more modern and bigger. It is full of history of Mezopotamia. Another "must see".

Interesting place. Some great mosaics with decent information on their age and subject matter. The second half of the exhibit seemed unfinished, or possibly an afterthought. Usual selection of kitsch souvenirs for sale afterwards.
