Afyon Ethnography Museum

Opening hours: 09:00 - 17:00

Closed on Mondays

 

Take a dolmuş along Kurtulus Caddesi, the continuation of Bankalar Caddesi And eventually you will arrive at Afyon  Archaeological Museum Near the intersection with Ismet Inonu Caddesi. Externally there is not much a distinguish this museum from many other run-of-the-mill local collections. However for once your money will be well spent since the collection here is both extensive and varied, with the Hittite, Phyrgian, Lydian and Roman finds among the most interesting. There are lots of marble statues a reflection of the fact that the marble quarries at what was then Dokimeon (now İscehisar) were the most important in Anatolia back then, as indeed they still are today. Outside, priceless chunks of marbles litter the ground like discarded gravel.
