Uluumay Müzesi (Uluumay Ottoman Folk Costume and Jewelry Museum) Review

A fine, albeit small, collection of traditional Ottoman costumes, some dating back to the 15th century, along with gorgeous silver jewelry, is on display in this museum opposite the Murat II Mosque and the. Mannequins dressed in the costumes revolve to afford a thorough study of the colorful embroidery. The building is a medrese (theological school), built in 1475 by Şair Ahmet Pasha, whose tomb is in its garden. A teahouse opposite the tomb in the garden overlooks the city.
