Afyonkarahisar Mosueum

The museum building is a single-storey building, apart from 9 interconnected exhibition halls, there are 5 rooms in the office part, a library, a conference hall, 5 depots on the lower floors, a photography workshop and a laboratory. The artifacts exhibited in the museum are very rich collections from the Old Bronze, Hittite, Phrygian, Lydian, Roman and Byzantine periods. The tools and materials such as terracotta, stone marble, bone, glass, metal pots, statues and coins belong to the people of our region. It gives us very important information about its life, belief, production and trade since the 3000s. Besides, marble statues, sarcophagi, tombstones and architectural pieces, which provide information about the trade and art of marble that has become industrial because of its importance today, increase the importance of the Museum. In the garden of the museum, usually Roman and Byzantine tomb steles, sarcophagi, cubes, statues, Seljuks, tombstones belonging to the Principalities and the Ottoman period are exhibited.
