  • It is one of those museums that you put on your list of “Must see” places and you are not let down by the experience. Fantastic job of creating the displays and the information in both English and Turkish is a big positive too. It is a bit confusing when you want to exit - not really obvious, but then that added to the experience. Well done to everyone who contributed and helped rescue these from the Birecik Dam.

  • One of the best mosaic museums I have visited outside of Italy. Great displays of mosaics on the walls, although lighting needs to be improved for the statue of Mars which appears as a black blob.

  • Nicely designed places, in the entrance there is a 3D film which is introduce a brief and useful information about the museum. Exciting mosaics are great heritage from the ancestors.

  • Wery recomended to visit this spot. There Is a amazing mosaic from Zeugma city especialy that Is now coverd with the new dam And So many od them Are left under the water these days.

  • The hype for this place was very big, but it doesn't live up to it unfortunately, and I don't think most people would find this place interesting. There are some very interesting and beautiful mosaic paintings here, but I wouldn't buy an airplane ticket to Gaziantep just to see them.
