Erzurum Archaeological Museum

Erzurum Archaeological Museum was first opened in Yakutiye Madrasa in 1944 and moved to Cifte Minaret Madrasa in 1947. After 20 years, it moved to its modern building at Murat Paşa Neighbor. The museum takes place in a 6,000-meter square garden, and a rich collection, including mammoth fossils, mollusk fossils, obsidian, Karaz, Transcaucasian, and Urartu culture artifacts, can be seen. In addition, Erzurum has known for its Oltu stone (a kind of jet stone found in the Oltu district) production, and the oltu stone section of the museum is worth seeing.
