Istanbul Arkeoloji Müzesi

Figurine of Goddess, Syria. —PeF

The Istanbul Archaeological Museum, home to many a delightful artefact, is located in Gülhane Park, just before reaching Sultanahmet. There are several buildings which contain various ancient items from across the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions— it is recommended that you visit with plenty of time to see it all, or you'll end up getting kicked out by an impatient security guard. If you plan to sketch, be aware that it is not allowed to sit on the floor and draw for some reason, but standing is fine.
