This small but lovely museum was once the residence of the governor, As’ad Pasha al-Azem (r 1700-42). The haramlek (women’s quarters), behind the ticket office, and the upstairs courtyard are particularly beautiful, leading Ross Burns, historian and author of the sage Monuments of Syria, to describe this place as ‘one of the loveliest Ottoman residential buildings in Syria’.
