Zeugma Mosaic Museum exhibits the Roman floor mosaics discovered in an ancient town reputedly founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals. The museum features 1,700 sq m (18,300 sq ft) of the colorful, intricate designs. Of particular note are mosaic scenes depicting a gypsy girl and the birth of Venus. Watch the film at the entrance to learn about the history of the ancient city. Head to the second floor for the best views of nearly complete mosaics retrieved from Roman villas before the site was flooded. Modern interactive displays, music, and lighting bring these historical pieces back to life.

  • Oh my gosh. The most amazing museum. It felt like I was stepping into a sacred place in history. It is so so so well done, and the mosaics are amazing. There are several small activities along the way that kids would enjoy. It took us about two hours to get through, but we could have stayed longer. There’s a nice little gift shop and cafe at the end. Bathrooms are clean!
  • It is the best mosaic museum all over the world ever seen. Don't miss out this place. You have never seen this kind of mosaics in your life. So %100 recommended to see this historical place. Come Turkey and come Gaziantep, Eat delicious khebabs and visit these uniq places.
