Kaymakamlar Müze Evi

Museum in Safranbolu

This typical Safranbolu home has all the classic features of Ottoman houses. Once owned by a lieutenant colonel, it still feels like an address of note as you climb the stairs looking up to the wooden ceiling decoration. Tableaux (featuring some rather weary mannequins) recreate scenes such as bathing in a cupboard and a wedding feast.

There's a peaceful cafe in the garden outside.
