I went to visit in October and it was closed for visits due to restoration. The note said the restoration began April 2018 and would remain closed for the remainder of 2018 and would open some time in 2019. Just an FYI to anyone planning a visit. Also, Etnoğrafya Müzesi next to it was open but most exhibits were also closed due to renovation.

There is a huge collection of wonderful paintings that you can spend peaceful time with. The building itself is located in a relaxing area. Plus, you don't need to pay for entering. If you visit the Ethnological Museum next door, don't miss this place:)

This area holds history about art in ottoman and turkey. Of course as art was forbidden during Ottoman empire (penalty of death) there is not much art objects dated from this period. The few are Coranic verse frames etc. But starting from Ataturk`s time, there is a very rich collection of art objects. The problem about the area, it has never been really the center of classical art of Ankara. It should have been. On my last visit, I noticed some art objects missing, which has been placed in archives most probably. This is very sad. For the few that are still there it is suitable to make a visit.

Incredible art museum featuring Turkish painters and sculptors....One of the best I've ever visited! Wide range of art, but mostly modern (last century onward). LOVED it! And it was FREE! Right next to Ethnology Museum, both can easily be done in one day. But no cafe in either. Beautiful grounds, nice for picnicking in good weather.
