Fodor's Review

This delightfully hokey museum, across the street from the Archaeology Museum, focuses on folk art and daily life. The collection includes everything from a reconstructed Ottoman bridal chamber (the mannequin groom looks like he's had second thoughts) to camel-wrestling gear, 19th-century embroidery, and a reconstruction of an old İzmir pharmacy. Reaching the museum's perch above a major highway interchange from the waterfront can be a little tricky. If you need directions, ask, Arkeologi Müzesi nerede? ("Where's the Archaeology Museum?")—it's easier to say in Turkish. Konak is the closest metro stop.
