Museum of Anatolian Civilisations

Çankaya Hisar Cad 2, Ankara

Open daily, 8.30–17.00

Housed beside the castle in two 15th-century Ottoman bedestens, this prize-winning museum of ancient history peels back the layers of successive Anatolian civilisations, from 6000BC Çatalhüyük to Roman Ancyra. The museum benefited from Atatürk’s wish for a proper Hittite display, and this remains central to the collection, with artefacts from all over the area including the Bronze-Age empire’s capital at Boğazköy. Assyrian trade agreements and Hittite correspondents are among early evidence of writing, and the 2,700-year-old Phrygian wood carvings are remarkably well preserved.
