Fodor's Review

Fifty yards inside Hadrian's gate, turn left for the Suna & Inan Kiraç Museum: a little oasis in a group of restored buildings with an unusual painted exterior that experts say reflects the way most Antalya houses looked in Ottoman times. The museum is part of a privately funded research institute and has an excellent library (accessible with special permission), plus a shop that sells a good range of guidebooks. The main display area has interesting pictures of Old Antalya and a couple of rooms with somewhat eccentric-looking but evocatively costumed mannequins that re-create Ottoman wedding scenes. The best part of the museum is the restored church in the garden, where there is a delightful display of historical kitsch.
