This may be a rather small museum, but it is really a gem and shouldn’t be missed when you are in Edirne. The beautiful and intact pieces found in Ainos ( today Enez) are really incredible. The museum has dedicated a special section to these...More

This museum is just behind the Selimiye Complex. Very small museum but worth visiting because there are many sculptures of ancient Greece and Rome exhibited here as well. The garden is full of sculptures, too. There is no English leaflets, I'm afraid. 小さな博物館ですが古代ギリシアやローマの彫刻が多く展示されており、このエリアがギリシア・ローマ文化圏であったことが窺えます。 入場料はたったの5リラなのにそれを上回る内容。中庭の彫刻や石棺の展示もいい。英語のパンフがないのが残念。

Small and very 'friendly '. Situated just at the back of Selimiye Cami. With beautiful garden. Inside Turkish folklore part and archaeological with Greek remains found in Ainos. For sure worth visiting.

This small museum has a great collection of everyday artifacts from the ancient sites of the area. The sculpture collection, the Ottoman Dioramas and the pre-historic stone dwelling ( outside in the garden) are very interesting. The staff is helpful and friendly.

While small, this is a fun place to visit in Edirne. There are artifacts that go back to prehistoric time, Roman times and others. Not a big building, so the time is 30 minutes or less, but the price is inexpensive. Glad we went.

Not far from the Selimiye Mosque. Artifacts and historical information from around the province, and a lot more less memorable pieces lying in the grounds.There is a small entrance fee (4TL).

This museum is behind Selimye mosque and is worth a stop. It just says "muse" on the outside. The first section is ethnographic and very colourful. The rest of the collection is Greek and Roman finds from Trace. It will take less than an hour...More
