This lovely old house has been filled with artifacts all arranged into elaborate dioramas. You have to take your shoes off or wear those plastic galoshes as you walk around--something I didn't like. It's an interesting thing to see if you're in town.

This Ottoman house has been restored and furnished as it would have been a hundred years ago. It is not amazing but a nice thing to visit on a cloudy day in Sinop. Don't miss the nice ladies working on looms in the basement who...More

The museum is in an Ottoman era mansion. Wax figures show you how they dressed and lived. Each room focuses on a specific aspect of their lives, such as the Bride's Room, complete with a closet that really was the en-suite shower! Another room reflected...More
