The path going right up the hill at the entrance of Gülhane Park leads you to the Archaeology Museums. The museum can also be reached from the First Courtyard of Topkapi Palace for this path being opened to the courtyard. Istanbul Archaeology Museum is located in three separate buildings. These are Archaeological Museum, Museum of the Ancient Orient, and Museum of Islamic Art (Tiled Kiosk).

Founder and director of the museum Osman Hamdi Bey discovered precious sarcophagus at excavations in King Necropolis in Sidon in 1887. A new museum building was designed by French architect Alexander Vallaury across the Tiled Kiosk for existing building was small for these sarcophagus and it opened in June 13, 1891. Museum building was expanded with additional structures later on.
