The Istanbul Archaeology Museum is a massive and fascinating place, home to more than one million objects of antiquity. It opened in 1891; The Istanbul Archaeological Museum hold outstanding collections of art from the ancient Near East, Greece and Rome.

When archaeology became a science in the 19th century, most of the Near East was ruled by the Ottoman sultan, who got all the best stuff. These were his private collections, so they’re pretty amazing.

Be sure to visit the Alexander Sarcophagus, which is covered with carvings inspired by the life of Alexander the Great (though his body does not rest inside as originally thought). Another popular attraction is the Sarcophagus of the Crying Women, which features an assortment of panels depicting, yes, you guessed it, mourning women.
