If you like mosaics and history this museum is for you. A staggering display of mosaics and all for a paltry 15TL. Beautifully presented and displayed a must see in this historic city. (Second only to its big cousin the "Zeugma museum" in Gaziantep)

Amazing museum. It was renewed and changed. If you like mosaics probably its the best. Also Gaziantep museum should be visited to complete. The people are helpful in the museum and you can have a coffee just by the museum. With some little touches it can be much better.

Simply awsome. For only 15 TL and kids free, you wont find anything in Turkey as good as this miseum. The museum is brand new. Money was not spared when building this place, it's gorgeous. No gawkers trying to sell you something or guides desperate for money anywhere.

Allthough the Museum is incomplete, there is à lot to see. Since it is the number one museum on mosaics, it must be in your "must see" list.

Normally museums aren't great for kids but the air conditioning was great for all of us. This museum was primarily filled with greco-roman period artifacts with excellent displays of mosaics despite the botched reassembly of many of them.

The new museum is worth to see just for magnificent mosaics. The first part dedicated to history of Antakya is educative. The impressive part is Mosaics on the floor, suggested to see them from top bridge to see and feel whole mosaics from different angle...
