Day 4 : The Istanbul Archeological Museum (1)

This is a gem of a museum. Pakdokter could easily spend a whole day going through the exhibits in the various sections of the museum. Exhibits originated from hundreds of years before Christ - a reminder of the wealth of history that had taken place in this country.
