With the visuals of archaeological artifacts, “The World’s Largest Museum: Turkey” brings together the cultural and historical heritage of Anatolia throughout a process from the Paleolithic age to the Hittite, Seljuk, Byzantine, Ottoman and Republican eras. The visuals show ancient sites such as the Karain Inns, Göbeklitepe, Çatalhöyük, Ephesus, Zeugma, Çavuştepe and others.

As part of the photography exhibition, more than 100 objects selected from various regions and eras were photographed. The photos will be displayed in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana, Bodrum and Antalya, as well as international tourism fairs, airports, consulate generals and prestigious exhibition halls in London, Paris, Frankfurt and Moscow.

The exhibition will remain open at Istanbul’s Darphane-i Amire building through December 31.
