“A well laid out museum set in pretty gardens”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Well worth a visit particularly coming from the UK as it encourages one to see the history and the artefacts on show from an Eastern viewpoint as opposed to the British Museum,a collections. We had about the Icons before the visit and had expected something more impressive but that is a comment on that which we had read

“One of the Best Stops in Sinop”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Sinop Archaeology Museum is a small but rich museum. This lovely museum building and beautiful garden situated in the middle of Sinop town center. Inside you can find Roman, Christian & Ottoman artifacts. In the garden there's a fish pond and ruins of Temple of Seraphis. One of the best stops in Sinop definetely.

“At last explanations in English and French!”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

Interesting artefacts and mosaics. Big Greek and Roman sections, but nothing much about the Byzantine period. We also get to learn a lot on the war of Independence. Worth visiting !

“Informative museum in lovely seaside town”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

The archaeology museum in Sinop is located in the town centre and gives and excellent account of the history of the town since its first inhabitants about 7 000 years ago and also have a good display of the Crimean War and the Russian attack which nearly destroyed the city. A memorial dedicated to the soldiers who lost their lives is in the museum garden. Sinop is a scenic seaside town on the Black Sea and it has a lovely waterfront where one can walk and there are good seafood restaurants. Opposite the museum is the Hotel Gonul which is great value for money and the central location makes for easy exploring of Sinop. The Erzurum Kebap restaurant is also opposite the museum gardens and have a delicious and affordable selection of Turkish dishes. Even in winter you can spend at least three days to explore Sinop and surrounds.
