Mosaic Museum

Hacımimi Mh., Lüleciler Arastası Sk, 80200 Istanbul Province, Turkey

Closed Mondays, open 9–7 in summer, 9–5 in winter.

In the shadow of the towering minarets of Sultanahmet Camii, the floor of the Byzantine great palace is preserved in this humble museum. The late antique mosaics are some of the finest of their kind, and vividly evoke the animals and people they portray.
