Istanbul Archaeological Museum - Artefacts Antiquities - Pictures & Images { 10 galleries }

Pictures of the Istanbul Archaeological museum exhibits of ancient & historic art artefacts antiquities. The Ottoman Empire was late in founding Archaeology Museums and it wasn't until the late 1800's when sultan Abdülaziz, impressed by the archaeology museums of western Europe ordered the foundation of an archaeology museum in Istanbul. The Istanbul Archaeological Museums are 3 museums located in İstanbul's Sultanahmet neighbourhood. The Archaeological museum opened in 1891 and today houses exhibits of world importance such as the Alexander Sarcophagus, the Sarcophagus of Crying Women and the Sarcophagus of Tabnit that came from the Royal Necropolis in Sidon. The Istanbul Archaeological Museum also houses exhibits of Roman statues and artefacts, Assyrian & Babylonian artefacts as well as anatolian artefacts Lycian and Hittite artefacts. A separate pavilion houses a collection of Iznik tiles and Islamic art. Many of our pictures of the Museum of the Anatolian Civilisations are exclusive to Funkystock Photo Library.
