Arkeoloji Müzesi (Archaeology Museum) Review

A number of finds from Troy, including gravestones, jewelry, and kitchenware, have made their way to this quiet and somewhat cavernous museum on the southern end of town, along with artifacts from Assos, Bozcaada, Apollo Smintheon, and other parts of the region. A massive sarcophagus is carved with funeral and sacrificial scenes, and another is painted with images of boar and stag hunts. Labels are in English and Turkish, and you'll probably have the entire place, along with its gazebo-filled garden, to yourself.
