Interesting place. Some great mosaics with decent information on their age and subject matter. The second half of the exhibit seemed unfinished, or possibly an afterthought. Usual selection of kitsch souvenirs for sale afterwards.

This museum has a good English headphone commentary and gives a full and interesting overview of the city and its history. Worth visiting to find out about Gaziantep and its surroundings

Well worth the visit especially after moving from the old small museum. Great displays although they have add-ons like apps to explore which costs more.
