Turkey’s Finest: The Top 10 Smaller Museums

There´s hardly a small town in Turkey that doesn´t have its own museum, and most of them follow a standard plan, with one section devoted to archeology, another to ethnography and a collection of miscellaneous bits and pieces outside in the grounds. Unfortunately, many of these museums are tucked away in places where few visitors are likely to find them, while very few have adequate labeling in Turkish let alone in any other language. Leading the way to a brighter future are a handful of privately owned and run museums in Ýstanbul and elsewhere, but there are also some state-run museums which, while not quite up to the standards of their five-star counterparts, are still worth going out of your way to find. Last year, the introduction of the Müze Kart (Museum Card) suggested new enthusiasm for getting visitors through the doors -- for just TL 20 the card offers admission to many of Turkey´s museums for a year. The snag? For the time being it´s only available to Turkish citizens, and not to foreigners, even those who have paid through the nose for residence permits, but must continue to cough up inflated "tourist" prices.
