See the deer-shaped statuettes from the Early Bronze Age, Neolithic wall paintings, Paleolithic stone and bone tools, İznik pottery, and what is reputedly the world's most extensive collection of Hittite artifacts.

I went to this museum during a 3-hour stopover on my way to Konya by train. So glad I did. A great museum with an outstanding collection. The exhibits are arranged to let you walk through time as you move from one civilization to the next. I couldn’t get over how impressive the collection is and how well set up it is for viewing. I didn’t want to leave.
This is is not the largest archaeological museum in the world but the collection is breathtaking, especially the Hittite artifacts. It has also a very nice garden with antiquities. It’s my favoriete place in Ankara.
