Excellent archeological museum with an extensive collection of artefacts. Really well organized and easy to follow. All signage is presented in both Turkish and English. An absolute must-visit in Ankara.

It is a wonderful place to really learn from the sibilizacions I recommend to come and visit and walk around, because there is also the castle, the small market and many places for some very good pictures.

Excellent museum and park, covering so many different periods. Recommend spending a few hours here, then walk around the shops and other ruins nearby. Descriptions are in Turkish, and also in English, which we appreciated!

A gorgeous museum located on the hill in Ankara. The museum grounds alone are very scenic and beautiful. Items curated there are well lighted and labelled.

Happened to have a musical performance going on when I visited. The acoustics are very good indeed. And the performance was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed my visit thoroughly. Really wished I could have stayed longer. Spent 2.5hours there and it wasn't enough. Guess I will have to try to visit again !

Entrance Fee in 2022 - Sep : TL 75

* I hope they publish a new museum guide with all the items in it. Currently, it's split into multiple books with lots of items not in it. It would be of great interest to people who don't have the time or photographic equipment to capture all the great artifacts kept here.

Epic. Located in the Ankara Castle the museum is separated by sections, each representing different Anatolian culture, starting from Neolithic Çatalhöyük all the way to the Hellenistic era. I wish only that the Hittite section was bigger.

Probably one of the most interesting sections was with the tablets found in Assyrian trading colonies that show us how the Bronze Age people were no different than us today. Marriage certificates, contracts, letters.

If you are interested in ancient history - a must place to visit.

My favorite museum in Ankara! It's full of history and interesting artifacts. An absolute must visit. The museum is very well planned out, and you learn a lot about ancient civilizations that lived in the anatolian region. If you liked the Istanbul Arkeology museum, then you will highly enjoy this one as well.

If you visit Türkiye you must visit this museum. Within its walls are the items from all the places you visited across the country. Used my Museum Pass to skip the line. Arrived early to beat much of the crowds. Spent 3 hours walking all the halls and enjoying the treasures of Türkiye. Favorite was the Midas displays (Midas touch) and the artifacts and wall murals from Catalhoyuk which visited prior week (this is a 9,500 year old Neolithic city just south of Konya - still being excavated and had an estimated 20k population). They had some displays on lower level of items found locally just in past couple years - amazing what they are still digging up. Thanks to the staff too for all the great friendly service. They have some amazing items in the courtyard not to be missed. Great gift shop too.

This museum is an absolute must-see, even if you're not a history lover. It is a home of exhibits of global importance, from civilizations that shaped the history if Asia minor.

Great collection, sections, and story telling. Museums in Turkiye are always nice to visit. It's nice that Turkish Museum Card has an application called "Museum Cards". I don't have to carry a card anymore and all the tickets and museum pass can be purchased in advance. I can also check all the museums available in certain cities before I visit.

If you are visiting Ankara you should definitely visit this museum. It is a fantastic experience and you learn so much about history. Most artifacts go as far back as 6000 BC. It's clean and well cared. I would recommend purchasing audio guide option when buying tickets in order to understand what you are seeing. Highly recommend.

Takes you back to history with amazingly prserved exhibits along with a great deal of details.

The tickets to the museum available at the entrance.

It was a pleasure to walk through the beautiful pebbled streets around the Castle area where there are plenty of antique shops and kilim merchants. And of course with feline masters well looked after by the towns man.

I wish to go there again.

You have to visit this museum if you’re visiting Ankara or even close to it.
The location is also great being very close to the castle so you can visit both on the same day.
The actual museum isn’t very large compared to other museums in turkey but it’s very clean, well organized, items are presented in a nice way, and has a lot of history.
The only thing I didn’t like is that the downstairs floor isn’t well decorated as the upper floor
