Şanliurfa Museum

Şehitlik Mahallesi. Çamlık Cad. Şanlıurfa

Şanliurfa Museum is the major event in town, housing Hittite finds from the region, including the statue of Balikgol from Göbekli Tepe, claimed to be the oldest statue in the world. In 2005 excavations in a nearby theme park revealed a hoard of Roman mosaics feature hunting and fighting scenes of warrior Amazon women. Described as “the most valuable mosaic collection in the world”, they prompted the building of a new museum complex, which will include an archaeology museum and an archaeopark as well as a mosaic museum.
