Şanlıurfa Museum (New one)

After a visit I wrote “On a website of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, under “Museums” one can find information about The Şanlıurfa museum. It describes the history of the museum and what to expect if you visit. There is one drawback: ALL THE INFORMATION IS OUTDATED and has been so for at least 4 years (I write in 2019).” Things became complicated, because back home I found site with better information. Almost up to date, though they used a Google-maps map which still shows the old location as that of the new museum. Again by the ministry, so it seems. The new one consists of a large complex in brick, of a nice architecture, that houses a collection of major importance, with amongst many other items ones from Göbeklitepe. Then there is another complex, called the Haleplibahçe mosaic museum, a large circular roof that like a tent covers a huge space, with lots of mosaics from Byzantine times (most 5-6th century), a few hundreds meters further in a park. A ticket is valid for both, I found I needed two visits on consecutive days because there is so much to see. I was astounded to find that the English texts in the new Archaeological museum are concise and clear, and the ones in the mosaics museum are utter rubbish. Professional versus amateurish.

Take a look at my sub-gallery of the gallery of the old museum that has some finds not shown here. And sorry, I made a mistake in renaming files, so very many pictures seem to have the same number 4855.
