Adana Archaeology Museum

The Adana Museum was opened in 1924, right after the announcement of the New Republic. Hence, it is one of the ten oldest museums in Turkey. It was opened for visits in 1928 in the Cafer Pasha Madrasa in the Taskopru district. It moved to the Kurukopru Ethnography Museum in 1950 and to its recent building in 1972. The collection consists of the artifacts that were discovered during the Tarsus Gozlukule, Mersin Yumuktepe, Misis, Karatepe, and Soguksutepe digs throughout the years. Plus, stone works belonging to the Hittite, Assyrian, Phoenician, Phrygian, Archaic, Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods are also available.
