There are actually three museums here dedicated to Archeology, the Islamic Arts and the Ancient Orient. Built in the 19th century, the museums have gained quite an impressive collection including what could possibly the first documented love poem, the world’s first peace treaty, relics from Sidon, Babylon and Assyria, Greek and Roman statuary, pottery, a sarcophagus collection and the main highlight, which is the Alexander Sarcophagus. Clear details of each exhibit are provided in both English and Turkish.

Istanbul Archaeological Museum, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review
One of the city's most popular tourist attractions, what you should know before visit it: - It is a complex that included: Museum of Ancient Orient, Tiled Pavilion Museum and Archaeology Museum. - It is included in Museum Pass. Single ticket is 20 liras. - Time fly here, you could spend a entire day enjoying and marvel with its collections. - Go early and take your time. - Important pieces: Alexander Sarcophagus, Ishtar Gate of Babylon, statue of an Ephebos, some statues from the Temple of Zeus (Bergama), the Troy exhibit and much more. - Bring some snacks, there is a central yard with benchs where you can sit and eat. I highly recommend visit this place
Must see if you are interested in sculpture or mythology. Pity it is not taken care of as it should be though. There are free concerts on Sunday mornings by the members of state symphony orchestra. Check out the concert schedule before going.
The museum building is very old itself and it is one of the most important museum in the world, in sense of Sumerian and Akadian period and later in Anatolia , Mesopotamia. The western robbers took most of them in Ottoman period but even the ones left is marvelous. I recommend it
Interesting and rich collection of artefacts but could have been better presented. The audio guide does not add much to the written English signs. Reception staff were apathetic.
It is always in the maintenance, but nice collection there. The airflow in the 2nd, 3rd floors is a very big problem.
