Very interesting with local historical items.

This museum has many different artefacts and features things like mummies of the Ilhanli rulers of the area. It was very well presented and a pleasure to explore.

Great little museum, really nicely layed out. The mummies made me feel a little sad, there are small children mummies and mummified parts of small children in the collection, and this is the first time that I've seen bodies or body parts layed out in an exhibition rather than in an excavation. It was a little confronting looking at these... More

If you only have one day in Amasya you should visit the museum which is 100m away form the main street. Wonderful mummies there!

It's very small museum. I went to this museum especially for status of tesup and mummies. Our visit lasted about twenty minutes but I suggest to go.

One of the smallest museums i've visited. can easily tour the whole thing in 15 minutes, unless you take the time to look at every single display carefully. the most interesting exhibit were the mummies. kind of exciting to see so many mummies at such a small museum.

Housing man interesting objects, from kitchen utensils to idols, from the God of storms, Teshup to mummies, from jewelry to old clothes, this museum must be visited in Amasya. Lost professions are shown here by mannequins and also doors and Windows from old moques and houses can be seen here. It is well organized museum which is easy to visit.

Our issue with the museum is that they co-mingle artifacts from different epochs; disconcerting to say the least. Nice garden with stele next door.

This museum is a must see if you're in Amasya. It is one of the best provincial museums in Turkey, and does a good job of explaining the history of Amasya Province from the Neolithic period to the Ottomans. Of particular interest are the mummies of a Mongolian ruler, his concubine, and his children.

We only had 25 mins for a quick look around and this deserved so much more, not that it is very large, but it has lots of interesting things to see. The exhibits were arranged very well, in chronological order, with quite a good explanation in English; not just of the historical context, but also some of the processes involved.... More

This is only a short walk from the town centre and we walked passed a few shops on route. There is also a little cafe across the road next to the museum. Delightfully presented and well written in English for most displays. The mummies were a bit scary so be careful with small children! If you have an hour to... More
