This museum was a home and formerly a 19th century Greek Orthodox Church. The two-story home is decorated in a typical Turkish fashion with dioramas, including one of a wedding ceremony. The mosaics were created from pebbles collected on a local beach. The Church of Hagios Georgios is one of the few Greek churches in the area.

A good display of local elements of life from years gone by. Entrance is only five lira but quite a lot to see.

Last year when we tried to visit the Suna & İnan Kıraç Kaleiçi Museum in Antalya it was closed for renovation, but it has now re-opened. It is a fine small museum created in the early 1990s by Suna & İnan Kıraç to preserve important elements of Antalya life and culture. A short walk from the Hadrian Gate, the museum consists of two buildings, a traditional two-storey Kaleiçi house and the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, both of them lovingly restored. On the upper floor of the house, mise-en-scènes illustrate aspects of 19th-century Ottoman culture, as well as evocative photographs and explanatory panels in Turkish and English. Downstairs, you cross a beautiful traditional pebble-mosaic courtyard to reach the church, which is testimony to the very sizeable Greek population of Antalya up until the early 20th century. The only religious symbol left inside the church is an interesting ceramic cross, but the church is light, airy and cool, a quiet retreat from the hectic bustle of modern Kaleiçi. It houses an exhibition of paintings of Antalya, and upstairs a fascinating exhibition of 19th-century photographs of the amazing variety of itinerant street merchants who once walked the streets of Antalya selling everything from fruit and candles to children's toys.

The museum entry fee is five lira. We spent an hour there, but you could easily see everything in much less if you are pushed for time. It is well worth a visit while you are in Kaleiçi.

A real cultural heritage which brought today with high class enthusiasm & elegancy...It makes you experince and imagine the old life style in Antalya. By the way, do not forget to ask the officer about the floor decoration and the stones used on the floor of garden entrance. They' re the air conditioning system of older generations for hot summer days.

Nicely designed Museum, which highlights the past of the city, traditions and long forgotten arts. It is a bit of everything. It is still a better idea to have someone local with you, who could tell you more about the items and artifacts in the museum. A very generous and admirable contribution of Kıraç family to Antalya culture and history of the near past. (When I say near I mean 100-200 years, because Antalya exists for more than 2000 years.)
