This museum shelters the most selected monuments of all Anatolian civilizations. Consequently it’s useful for the comprehension of Anatolia’s long and complex history.
This museum which was opened in 1969, is one of the most significant regional museums of central Anatolia. In its garden we see a copy of the Fractin monument, the original of which is in southern Kayseri.
Another important Hittite memorial of this museum is the lions of Göllüdağ. In the glass windows of the museum we find the famous Cappadocian tablets, the statues of the Anatolian mother goddesses, examples of Hittite pottery, the beautiful İmamkulu fresco which shows the Hittite god of storm, and innumerate monuments from the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
