  • Harika bir müzedir. İstanbul Ünv. okuduğum yıllarda bir İzmir seyahati sırasında gezdim müzeyi süper ötesi bir şey… Tarihi müze niyetiyle gidersiniz ama gördükleriniz tamamen tarihin tekerrür ettiğini size ispatlar. Her şeyin ayrı ve sürükleyici bir hikayesi mevcuttur. Giderken yanınıza bir rehber almayı da unutmayın 😉

  • A smaller building initially stood on the same site for a just few years before being torn down. It housed the important excavation finds unearthed by the Berlin museums, such as the frieze panels from the Pergamon Altar, reclaimed from the earth in digs that lasted from 1878 to 1886.
