excellent archeology museum Nov 09, 2007
Having once started studying archeology, I am a big fan of archeological museums. Even if they just have a few old coins and arrowheads, I won't miss it. Out of all those I've visited, the one in Istanbul is easily one of the best.

Turkey being a crossroads of civilisations from an early age, it's not a big surprise that this museum houses fascinating remains for many cultures and time periods. Babylonian, Greek, Roman, Islamic, and so on. And they didn't even have to steel it from some far-away country (like the British museum et all), it's all local stuff.

There are several museums inside the grounds. And even the buildings themselves are quite nice.
