“Surprisingly rich”
Review of Bolu Museum

Bolu Museum
Ranked #9 of 26 things to do in Bolu
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 April 2014

This small (and free of charge) museum in a mountain resort can surprise you with its lovely display. Apart from an average ethnographic section, it stores the artefacts from ancient Bithynion-Claudiopolis, located underneath the center of modern Bolu. Being the birthplace of Roman emperor Hadrian's favorite - Antinous - the city was flourishing in the 2nd century AD. The ancient luxury can be seen in the spectacular marble fragments preserved in the museum. One of the highlights inside is the colorful marble bust of a woman and an impressive gravestone of a gladiator with a helmet.The best part of the museum is probably in its courtayrd, with many findings that come from rescue excavations at recent construction sites: Roman sarcophagi, funerary reliefs, inscriptions, altars and exquisite architecture pieces. And they are remarkably well labeled (with excellent epigraphic explanations), especially in comparison to similar small museums throughout Turkey. The Bolu museum could definitely benefit from better brochures ot information panels inside.
