Antalya Museum

This is possibly my new favourite museum in the world.
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

It contains beautifully presented objects from prehistoric times

though the classical  Greek and Roman periods

and early Christian ikons

and in the gardens outside there's even a resident peackock who seems to revel in being photographed!

Unbelievable and practically deserted too.

But the best thing about the museum was the huge collection of classical statues and busts.

They are the subject of the next post...
