Eti Archeology Museum , located on Atatürk Boulevard, is one of the most important museums of Eskişehir . The museum’s history dates back to 1945. The artifacts obtained from the archaeological studies began to be preserved at the Alaaddin Mosque , one of the historical mosques of the city. In 1966, the Directorate of Eskişehir Museum was officially established within the Kursunlu Mosque and Complex and was opened to service and display. In 1974, the construction of the new museum building began.
The inadequacy of the museum building was closed to visits and scientific studies in 2011 due to the need for a museum to meet today’s requirements. Until 2007, the museum could not create a space, the new building of the museum sponsored by Eti started this year. The museum which opened in 2010 welcomes its visitors from this date. However, the capacity problem has not been solved yet and more than 18 thousand works have been removed to the museum depot.
The museum consists of three parts. In the two exhibition halls, the delicate artifacts are exhibited and various works of historical value are exhibited in the open space in the garden. One of the most remarkable aspects of the museum is the digital exhibition applications carried out with METU and TUBITAK.
Digital exhibition applications within Eti Archaeological Museum are intended to introduce the immovable cultural assets of the city. Important ancient tombs and artifacts in the city are shown to visitors through three-dimensional drawing technique.

You can be sure that you will be very pleased with the famous emin Bol Chance ine or ine Bono Fides o.
