The Kastamonu Museum is housed in the Liva Pasha Mansion that dates back to 1870 and was built by Mir Liva Sadik Pasha. In 1979 the house was expropriated by the Ministry of Culture and with reconstructions and restoration work, the place was converted to a museum and opened to the public in 1997. Today, the museum houses some of the rarest artefacts around the world- including weapons, historic garments, ethnic Kastamonu handicrafts, printed work of art, wood artefacts and ethnographic exhibits.
The upper floor of the museum maintains the original layout of the house complete with a bridal bedroom, the main hall, a guest room and a living room. The wooden furnishing, paintings, cutlery (tea cups) collection, lock collection, porcelain artefacts and archaeological finds, spin a charming story of the city and gives you a brief walk into the life in turkey across decades. The adjoining garden has historic relics, columns, statues and pieces of columns adorning the periphery of the house along with well preserved pottery pieces. Overall, the museum is the perfect place to kick start your stay in Kastamonu.
