  • A private museum erected by Mr. Mehmet Ali Kudar with EU funds support. Many invaluable historic artifacts and hand made utensils. Museum also has a traditional Asian old Turkish "Yurt" tent...  more »
  • You can explore all sort of stuff that are used by the regional villagers for decades or even centuries. The most interesting thing on display is a very old sea turtle mummy.  more »
  • You can see the oldest tortoise shell in this museum. As it is a small museum, it does not take a lot of time to see all the pieces. The museum needs air conditioning because it is hard to breathe inside when you go there in summer.
  • Great ethnography museum considering it is very small and authentic, funded by some citizens. Interesting details about Turkish shamanism, a few stuffed animals including an almost 2m long sea turtle, antiquities given by locals are some valuable points to talk. Only 2 TL (40 cents) entry fee. If you are in the Kazdaglari area, it is a good idea to spend an hour for this place.
