Very rare items are exhibited here. In a nutshell you can see the masterpieces of Asia Minor. If you are not there with a guide make sure you take an audio guide though it is well exhibited and informative, the audio guide is always one step ahead. Some pieces brought tears in my eyes.

The collection of findings is quite huge, however there are many findings from early ages, the working hours is not convenient as they worked only till 5 on Saturday. The entrance fee is 20 tl.

Entering this museum I didn't expect anything special, but it was not just another collection of old stones. Really, I have never seen anything like that before, even in Istanbul Archeological Museum. The relics coming from ancient Anatolyan cults and religions, like a goddess with big butt, captivated my imagination. Beautiful carvings, gold and silver jewelries and painted decorations were...

Ankara is short on attractions but we followed the visit to amazing Anitkabir with a visit to the Anatolian Civilizations Museum. Turkey is steeped in history and there are monuments all over the country. I thought I might be bored - but I was over-awed. Beautifully presented artifacts that you can only see here tracking the civilizations that have passed... More

Items from before Christ are displayed, which show how historical this part of the world. Highly recommended and it can take at least 2-3 hours of your time. A guide can make you understand what each item means and hear the stories behind them.
