Met at the gate by a very friendly guard who gave us an informational booklet on what we were looking at. Great explanations throughout the exhibit, and as we were the only ones visiting at the time, we took a lot of time imagining what...More

Very accessible and easy to see up close. The various conditions of the mud brick walls is quite interesting though the most interesting part in my opinion was the well preserved wall paintings. Definitely worth the visit if you're in Malatya (the name Malatya can...More

We were here to get a sense of history, going back 5-6000 years. We had a few moments of silence and emotion, as we walked around the excavations and could see all the findings in their real setting. Big boards provide really good information.

Large archaeological site with good signage and lots of information. There are walkways through and around the site. There is also a reconstruction of a typical house of the era at the entrance that is interesting to walk through

You can see how people produced, saved and lived in the old times. The excavations started in the 1950 and still going on.

This is an ancient Hittite settlement which is being researched and excavated. It is in the village of Orduzu, only about a 20 minute bus ride from the city centre of Malatya. It's not "impressive," but the documentation and signage are very good, and if...More

Due to a collaboration between Italian and Turkish scholars, this site is well marked by signs explaining the rooms and layout. That said, none of the aforementioned artifacts are there! There are replicas of items right at the entrance, but the inside holds nothing of...More
