Boğazkale Museum

Museum in Boğazkale

Unsurprisingly, Hittite artefacts dominate the small Boğazkale Museum which does a good job of explaining the history and culture of the Hittite empire with plenty of information boards in English. The pride of the collection are the two sphinx statues that once stood guard at Hattuşa's Yer Kapı gate. They were only returned to Boğazkale in 2011, having previously been on display in Berlin and İstanbul. Free audioguides are available.
