Erimtan Archaeology and Arts Museum

Kale Mahallesi, Gözcü Sokak No: 10, Altındağ, Ankara

Tue–Sun: 10.00–17.00, closed 31 December and 1 January

The Erimtan Archaeology and Arts Museum is the brain childer of a private collector, Yüksel Erimtan, and home to a private institution devoted not only to showcasing s collection of Anatolian archaeological artefacts but also to staging of all kinds of cultural activities.

A multi–purpose exhibition hall offers space for temporary exhibitions, musical concerts and scientific, cultural and artistic activities. Take a look at the remarkable roll call of exhibitions. The museum is a dynamic space with education programmes designed for all ages, but especially children.The museum library provides a rich academic environment for researchers and inquisitive minds alike. One can find unique surprises at the gift shop, as well as a good cafe with a terrace overlooking the city.

Standing beside the superbly restored Çukurhan caravanserai, now a Divan Hotel, at the entrance to the historic Ankara Castle, the museum occupies what were once no doubt three fine Ottoman houses but by the 1980s had crumbled to slum-like ruin. A few steps down the hill is the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations. This and the nearby Çengelhan Koç Museum make the perfect city weekend break.

Since opening its doors in 2015, the Museum has deservedly become a focal point in Ankara’s cultural and artistic life.
