A must see in Edirne, award winning museum (UNESCO & European Museum awards). Ottoman medical school, famous for its caring after mental illnesses by music and relaxing sound of water. My 6 year old son loved it, visited all rooms one by one, asking what they are and what they were used for. It was a trip full of learning and fun.
