Mardin Museum

Museum in Mardin

This superbly restored late-19th-century mansion sports carved pillars and elegant arcades on the upper floor. Inside, it has a small but well-displayed collection including a finely detailed 7th-century-BC Assyrian vase and finds from Girnavaz, a Bronze Age site 4km north of Nusaybin.

East along Cumhuriyet Caddesi is the beautiful three-arched facade of an ornately carved old Mardin house.
