Lonely Planet review

Diyarbakır's original Archaeology Museum was closed at the time of writing, and scheduled to reopen in 2013 in a new location inside the İç Kale. Ask at the Diyarbakır tourist office for an update.

Before the move, the well-presented collection included finds from the Neolithic site of Çayönü (7500–6500 BC), 65km north of Diyarbakır. Also showcased was a decent Urartian collection and relics from the Karakoyunlu and Akkoyunlu, powerful tribal dynasties that ruled much of eastern Anatolia and Iran between 1378 and 1502.
