If you follow the statue of Ataturk in Ulus to the north, about 250 meters later on the right is the entrance of this museum.. You may have to look for it. The remnants are incredible if you enjoy historical locations. Visit as soon as possible since it may be closed for construction or it may be moved to somewhere... More

The Roman bath was built during the period of the Roman Empire Caracalla between 212-217 and it was used for approximately 500 years. When you enter the Open Air Museum, you will see the ruins of the Palaestra, the Baths, the columned street and Roman and Byzantine tombs, funerary steles and inscriptions on blocks ecc. on 65.000 metres square.

Another treasure of Ankara whose inhabitants are not aware of its existence. Definitely visit the site if you are around Ulus District. The entrance free is around 1-2 euro! The site includes not only well preserved ruins of a Roman Bath but also other relics from the sooner times, spreading till the grave stones of Ankara's last Armenians from 19th... More

Even though it is in a busy central area of Ankara, this place is surprisingly peaceful and well worth the visit. Explore the remains of the Roman baths of Ancyra and a huge collection of finely carved marble architectural details, inscriptions and altars. There are good information panels and brochures. And all that for mere 3 TL! Definitely better value... More

Thsi site is quite easily accesible. It can be advised as an addendum to a Kale visit. the site is well kept and has helpful signs. the visitor should be patient and look into all corners of the area. one can understand the general arrangements of roman baths very well here.

I went to this open air museum years ago. It's a great place to go to on a nice day, right in the heart of Ankara surrounded by buildings. A hidden gem where you can walk through the ruins and imagine what it would have been like to go to these back in the Roman days!
