Beautiful, elaborate tiles extend from side of walls all the way to the dome, very impressive. The museum also has a great collection of tiles from a royal family, as well as information on the life of a tile making master. Very interesting.

I like Iznik Tiles. When I visited Karatay Museum, I recognized that Konya has the oldest samples of tiles.

The tilework and painted items inside are beautiful, as is the main dome overhead. There are some interesting sarcophagi and ancient exposed pipes in the floor. The entire museum will take less than an hour for the average person to see, and at 5TL it's...More

When staying in Konya it's worth visiting all the small museums (at 6TL entry they're very reasonable). This museum is housed in a beautiful 13th century seminary, and although the display of tiles is small, they are worth seeing. The entrance portal is impressive, the...More
