Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum, Gaziantep Reviews - Write a Review
It's realy big place where you can see mosaics and learn much about them. But you will not see nothing exapt of mosaics so if you are not interested in them this place is not that useful to visit. Also can be interesting for those who likes antic history.
Ancient mosaics! There are so many mosaics in the museum and they are so much precious. Must see!
Here you can find the mosaic masterpieces mostly dating back 200-500 A.D. They are worth seeing and tell you much about the beliefs and lifestyles of those people who lived then.
Amazing museum. That is the only must go place in Antep
There are many mosaic dated 2000 years ago. Not very big, there is audioguides and also a free app with the same content.
