Pergamum Archaeological Museum
The Archaeological Museum in Bergama contains just a fraction of the artifacts from the ancient city of Pergamum, as most of it was taken away by German archaeologists and is now displayed in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.
Still, there are enough artifacts to make a visit here worthwhile. Among the most notable objects are a statue of Hadrian taken from the Asklepion library, a second-century stone horse from the Altar of Zeus, and the oldest statue in the museum: a 4th-century-BC kuros.
There is also a faithful replica of the original Altar of Zeus, which is now displayed in Berlin. An ethnographic wing exhibits a collection of objects, costumes, and textiles from the surrounding region.
