Great Palace Mosaic Museum

Local nameBüyük Saray Mozaikleri Müzesi
LocationIstanbul, Turkey

This little museum hidden just situated directly in the Arasta Bazaar is unjustly overlooked and underestimated. It offers a rich collection of Byzantine mosaics, but you won’t find any religious figures here. The mosaics depict scenes from everyday life from playing children to farmers taking care of their animals.
