The Kostaki Mansion (1917), built for a Greek banker in the Ottoman Black Sea style, briefly hosted Atatürk in 1924. One of provincial Turkey's most comely museums – with ornate rooms, painted ceilings, carved wooden doors and original furnishings – it displays interesting ethnographic and Ottoman artefacts. The basement 'archaeological opus' has more significant pieces, including a flattened bronze statue of Hermes unearthed at Tabakhane in 1997, plus icons, coins and jewellery from the Roman, Byzantine and Comnenos periods.
