Amasya Museum information
This superb museum packs in beautifully laid out treasures from the Bronze Age, Hittite, Pontic and Roman eras. Look out for the famous Statuette of Amasya, a bronze figure of the Hittite storm god Teshub. The highlight though is a collection of mummies dating from the 14th-century İlkhan period. The bodies, mummified without removing the organs, were discovered beneath the Burmalı Minare Camii. They're not very suitable for squeamish or young eyes.
There's also a wealth of manuscripts, Ottoman artefacts, an armoury of flintlock guns and the original wooden doors from Amasya's Gök Medrese Camii. All the displays have detailed information panels in English.
