Nigde Archaelogical Museum
Having gone through a long, effortful restoration process, the Archaeological Museum of Niğde was reopened in 2001 in its renovated building and was nominated by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism to the European Museum of the Year Award in 2003. Since then, the museum has been receiving appreciative remarks for its high quality exhibition displays and museum management.
The first exhibition hall reveals the artifacts, tomb relics and figurines of the Neolithic and Chalcolithic ages discovered particularly in the excavations of the Bor district. The unique items from the Late Bronze Age and the Assyrian Trade Colonies are on display in the second exhibition hall. Additionally, the findings from Nahita and Tuvanuva, two very significant late Hittite city states, are among the precious assets of this museum. Coins and mummies are also not to miss.
Each year, the museum is being visited by a constantly growing number of tourists.
