This museum is opposite the Selimiye Cami to the north with a garden of gravestones in front. The grounds contain all kinds of jars sculptures dolmens and menhirs (standing Stone), as well as replicas of the sort of wattle and daub huts that may have been used by Thrace’s Stone Age inhabitants.
Inside the slightly crowded displays include local history embroidery, textiles and home furnishings. There are several reconstructions of rooms in old houses including a circumcision room and bridal corner. The archaeological section runs from prehistory through to the classical period of Hadrianopolis and has also acquired the finds from recent digs around the Macedonian Tower .
