Museum of Anatolian Civilizations

Ankara, Turkey
4.7 / 9
Founded in 1921 by the personal orders of President Ataturk. The exposition occupies the buildings of a caravan-shed and an indoor market, erected in the 15th century. The main condition for getting exhibits for the museum collection is the attitude to the nationalities that inhabited the lands of Anatolia. There are objects of different periods, starting with the Paleolithic. During the excursion you can get an accompanying English speaking guide.
