The museum is interesting but you need to get an audio guide or take part in a guided tour in order to understand more about Rumi and the sufist philosophy. The museum is rather small and the signs are not very detailed. If you are...More

The old mosque-turned-museum is nice to walk around in, the old madrasah rooms have mini exhibits old artefacts. The guided tour is a must and you need a passport or ID in order to get one! Otherwise it’s just not informative enough and you end...More

Interesting museum. Gets very busy with bus tour groups. Not very well signed. For someone not familiar with Rumi, it may be better to get a guide.

The tomb was under renovation so could not see it. The museum houses the clothing & paraphernalia used by this great Persian philosopher, poet & saint, Rumi. A time well spent, worth a visit.

The entrance was free. Not much guidance and not all staff speak English but the audio guide was really helpful. Beautiful place though with alot of history. Definitely a must see if you're in Konya.

This is a great museum about the life of Rumi, containing many artifacts. If you are a fan of Rumi, then it is worth your visit.

A very cosy and beautiful indoor/outdoor (religious) museum right in the very heart of Konya. A must do for a tourist! A slow stroll around this museum takes about 20-30 minutes to complete with a lot of very interesting sights. Free entrance! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Very well organized, clean, and the staff are profoundly helpful. Get there as early as possible, as people arrive "by the bus load" and couwds can be an issue as the viewing rooms are small in some areas of the museum
