Edirne Archaeology & Ethnography Museum information
Behind the Selimiye Mosque is this museum with two sections: one archaeological and the other ethnographic. Highlights of the archaeological section include Thracian funerary steles featuring horsemen. The ethnographic section showcases carpets, embroidery, textiles, calligraphy and jewellery; don't miss the wooden objects decorated in the Edirnekâri style, a lacquering technique developed locally during the Ottoman era.
