Edessa Mosaic Museum

Top choice museum in Şanlıurfa

This modern domed structure protects the excellent Haleplibaçhe (Aleppo Gardens) mosaics, part of a Roman villa complex only discovered in 2006 when construction started on a planned theme park. Highlights include wonderfully detailed mosaics showing Amazon warrior queens and the life of Achilles. The theme park has been usurped by Şanlıurfa's sprawling Archeopark, also taking in the city's massive new archeology museum.
