Izmir Ethnography Museum

Situated within the four-story former St Roche Hospital, the Izmir Ethnography Museum houses some fascinating artifacts relating to the Seljuk period of Turkish history, exploring everything from camel wrestling and weaponry to jewelry and embroidery. The site makes for an interesting visit with photographs and dioramas to browse, plus various examples of local arts, crafts, clothing and customs from the period, demonstrating the way of life in Izmir and its surroundings.

Notable displays include a collection of illustrated manuscripts and a number of folkloric artifacts, including a collection of Bergama and Gordes carpets.

Practical Info

The Izmir Ethnography Museum sits right next door to the Archaeology Museum, and so a combined visit is recommended. Entrance into the Ethnography Museum is free, and the nearest metro station is Konak.
