First of all, local people must see here at least once, instead of going malls which is already a routine for them every week. Good place for kids to learn and love nature, geology. There is no entrance fee. Strongly recommended for everyone who visits...More

For those interested in fossils, skeletons of animals like the dinasours, and different kinds of valuable or semi-valuable stones, this museum has a nice atmosphere.

I liked eğiş museum. I suggest to everybody to visit kids. I really surprised with the natural heritage of Anatolia. I asked to myself why I have not visited before.
