The location of the Istanbul Archaeological Museum is very good. In fact, half of the famous attractions are located in the Sudan area. It's sandwiched between St. Sophia's Cathedral and the old palace. Anyway, it can be found anyway. Tickets are not recommended for individual tickets, or for Istanbul Museum Pass for five days. 200 lira can visit many museums, including the Museum of Islamic Art, the Cathedral of St. Sofia or something, but the Underground Water Palace is charged extra. Museum collection is very rich, and the museum building itself is also a historical building, the main exhibition hall exhibits how big four floors, if you look carefully, a day can be in it. It happened to catch up with the maintenance of the exterior wall, but the protection was well done. Dustproof cloth was in harmony with the style of the building itself.
This is a tourist attraction with few visitors. If you want to know the history and culture of Byzantium and Ottoman, this is a must. All kinds of medieval sarcophagus, sculpture, casting technology, as well as customized porcelain handed down in China, are worth spending half a day to visit.
The Archaeological Museum (stanbul Arkeoloji M 252; zeleri) is in the alley to the Palace of Topkapa. It's very convenient to visit it when you come back from the Palace of Topkapa. It has a history of more than one hundred years. The museum's collections are from archaeological discoveries in Turkey, as well as from Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and other Middle East countries.
When we went there, part of the museum was being renovated, and it closed very early. It was not allowed to enter at 4 o'clock, so we had to go early. There are many cultural relics and monuments in it, and you can listen to the team's explanation. Mummies and coffins are super many and interesting.
Archaeological museums display a large number of classical stone carvings and sarcophagus from Syria, Lebanon, Ephesus and other places. The treasure of the town hall is the sarcophagus Alexander sarcophagus, a finished product from the Royal Cemetery of Sidon, Lebanon, in the 4th century B.C., which relieves the violent battle between Alexander's Macedonian army and the Persian army of Obertalonimus. The exquisite sculptor of the sarcophagus reminds me of the same exquisitely carved stone carvings of twenty-four musical gimmicks on the sarcophagus bed of Yongling, Chengdu.
I like it very much. It's not far from the Topkapa Palace. There are archaeological museums, ancient oriental museums and Islamic art museums. They have a lot of exhibitions. Cultural relics cover many parts of the world. They are very large and few people. It's a good choice.
The scale is not small, there are a large number of Roman sculptures, artistic and ornamental.
To witness the civilization of Asia Minor, we must go to the Archaeological Museum in Istanbul to experience the shock of knowledge on the spot. The Istanbul Archaeological Museum consists of three museums. Archaeological Museum (Main Building) The most important collection items of the Archaeological Museum of the Ancient Oriental Museum, the Islamic Art Museum (Tiled Kiosk), are ancient sarcophagus and Greek fossil carvings, which can link up the cultural development of the Anatolian Plateau in Asia Minor. The Istanbul Archaeological Museum has a collection of more than one million cultural relics, representing almost all periods and civilizations in world history.
Although we did not see some regrets during the renovation of the ancient Greek sculpture hall, the other Oriental pavilions and other exhibits were relatively rich. Because I am a professional, I have stayed in museums for a long time. The Mesopotamic Art here is rare and valuable in other European museums. But there are many cats and cats here. They can be seen everywhere. They are still sleeping in the museum bookstore. OK Meow Star, you won:)
