Amasya museum


Museum located in the city center  was used to be a store where a few archeological  artifacts and  Islamic period Mummies kept. The museum store was a part of  mosque complex which was built to the name of Sultan Mehmet II in 1925.


However in time with the additional artifacts and findings it was needed to have a bigger place so museum was changed into a  place to monumental Seljukian period Mosque ( gokmedrese ) in 1962.

The museum  moved to The present building on March 22, 1977, and all the things are exhibited arranged and put in a chronological in order to make people understand more about history.

Twenty four thousand Archaeological, ethnographic works of art, coins, seals including manuscripts and mummies belonging 11 different civilization are exhibited in  Amasya museum . It is the most modern and richest museum in the region.
