Ticket price raise at some museums

Hi,

As of yesterday (April 15th), some museums have raised their ticket costs, such as:

Topkapi palace: 25 TL

Hagia Sophia: 25 TL

Ephesus: 25 TL

Many other museums remained the same as before. You can find the latest museum fees in Turkey for 2012 at …kulturturizm.gov.tr/TR/…

Do you know if Topkapi Palace has also raised the price of entry to the Harem?

kalp-51, I was going to post a separate thread and I think I will still do it about this museum. 2 days ago I visited the famous Zeugma Museum at Gaziantep. Simply stunning and absolutely outstanding. There is almost no such museum in Istanbul. I spent about 3 hours there but you can easily spend more. The gypsy girl is at a special darkened hall on the second floor. These mosaics,belonging mostly to 2nd Century AD, IMHO, are much more stunning and valuable than works of art of Renassaince, 1.5 millenium later. Have a look: "www.youtube.com/watch…", and "http://www.muze.gov.tr/gaziantep-en". The admission fee is 8 TL for regular visitors.

After the new wing opens up to public to the right side of the entrance, the museum will be 1.5 time larger and even more stunning. Don't miss the 3D movie in English about Zeugma inside the museum right at the beginning of your tour.

good luck,

Hi,

Does this mean that the price of the museum pass will also increase ?
