OPENING HOURS

openhrs


Archaeological sites

Archaeological sites tend to be open from 8 am to 7 pm in summer, closing at 5 pm in winter. Some but not all close on Mondays. 


Museums

Turkish museums are usually open from 8.30 am to 5 pm all year round. Smaller museums tend to close for an hour for lunch some time between noon and 1.30 pm. 

Most museums except the real blockbusters close on Mondays which means that if you're visiting for a long weekend Friday to Sunday may be better than Saturday to Monday.
