Beschrijving

This museum is housed in the former residence of Ibrahim Pasa; this son of a Greek slave became the grand vizier of Suleyman the Magnificent. Its rooms, arranged around a central garden, house a number of splendours of decorative Islamic art from the 11C onwards: ceramics, glasswork, calligraphy, paintings and miniatures. The room dedicated to Seljuk carpets shows the various stages in their manufacture. A fascinating ethnographic section depicts the different lifestyles of the Turkish people in the 19C.
