Goreme Open - Air Museum, Goreme Reviews

  • Fascinating place to look around. Consider getting the museum pass if you are to visit more than one place but note you only have 3 days to use it. The wall paintings of the early medieval Christian are amazing especially in the Buckle church.

  • Definitely worth the visit. Word of caution. There is one area of the museum (the dark church) that is blocked off inside unless you pay ANOTHER entry fee inside of the park. They may have posted that near then entrance... But all signs are pretty much only in Turkish (not very helpful to most tourists). The entry fee to this one part of the park (and likely the highlight) is about 2/3 the cost of the original entry fee. It felt like a bait and switch. Based on this fact alone we decided NOT to pay and left the park shortly after. The audio guides were helpful, but all a word of caution here that we found the English translation to be just OK in terms of the amount of content. Better than having to get your history from placards though. If this place wasn't so unique, it would get a 2 star review, but it's still worth the visit - hence 4 stars.

  • The next and last stop for the day was at "Goreme Open-Air Museum" - one of Turkey's UNESCO World Heritage Sites which holds the best collection of painted cave-churches. Also,, the medieval orthodox Christian monks (1000-1200 AD) carved the caves from the soft volcanic stones and decorated them with elaborate Byzantine frescoes depicting the Bible.

  • Takes less than 2 hours to view everything. It is better to do some readings first or rent an audio guide. I heard this museum was nothing special but I think it's totally wrong. It's very interesting and it's very hard for me to imagine what kind of power support those people who built these little churches and lived around here and buried here. For photographer: better to come in the afternoon. Tip: the stuffs in museum shop are heavily overpriced. 2-3 times of the real price.

  • It's a compact version of entire Cappadocia. Very well preserved history. If you walk from main bust stop of Cappadocia, Goreme to Goreme open air museum you will find many interesting spots for photography and will discover some nice restaurants and cafes. Must visit for tourists.
