Archeology Museums Popular Places

The Istanbul Archaeology Museums are housed in three buildings just inside the first court of Topkapi Palace. Besides the archaeology collection in the main building, there are separate buildings for the Museum of the Ancient Orient and the Cinili Kösk. The museums were opened in 1891 as a result of Osman Hamdi Bey, a 19th century painter and archaeologist who fought the government in order to stop the smuggling of antiques out of Turkey. There are over 1 million items in this large collection of artifacts from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Lebanon, and Turkey.

Address: Alemdar Cad. Osman Hamdi Bey Yokuşu Sk, 34122, Gülhane / Fatih, İSTANBUL
