The New Building opened in 1998 has magnificent Exhibits of Troia and Anatolian Cultures. There is very well displayed section for Istanbul.

Sumeria, Hitite, Akkadia, Babylonia and many other cultures will get you deep into the histories that have affected European Culture. Finally - and of course - to have an unforgettable day you need a splendid guide to help you enjoy and appreciate this unique museum.

Sufi is a mystic that seeks to find divine truth and love through direct encounters with God. Sufism developed religious practices focusing on self-control to enable both mental and mystical insights as well as a loss of self, with the ultimate goal of mystical union with God. The Sufi movement consists of fraternal orders in which leaders train and assist disciples in the mastery of Sufism’s philosophical principles and ritual practices. Such rituals and practices include writing and reciting poetry and hymns; some of the most famous and beautiful literature of the Islamic world has been written by Sufis. This tour is focused on Sufi practices, philosophy and dargahs (sufi shrine). Knowing the fact that each order has different day and time of dhikr (Islamic devotional act), places of visits will change accordingly. The tour includes the visit to dargahs; nevertheless, we can not guarantee participation of dhikr due to unexpected events. Mevleviye, Cerrahiye and Nakshibendiye are some of the places that are on our list of the orders.
