This place is so under-rated. It has the worlds most biggest mosaics in one piece. There are various sections of the museum which take you in the past starting from pre-Human Era to the present day....A must place to visit if you are in Hatay

The mosaics are the highlight of the museum. I loved the ceramic collections from various eras equally. The museum offers a nice and comfortable visit. It doesn't overwhelm you. Yet, count around 2 hours for a visit.
