The museum is more about the tools and crafts of ordinary folks than about the pieces of artists. One could find clothes worn by nomads, dervishes, carpets, nicely crafted ornaments dating centuries. The museum also has an extensive coin collection. It was interesting to observe the rows of coins coming from the 13th century Ottoman Turkey all the way to the 21st century modern Turkish republic.

Everybody has own choice of TRAVELS. We chose to enjoy without any GUIDED Tour. In this choice we had very very nice experiences. The Information Centers, The Turkish People, and so manyyyyyyy. We had a full day tour in Bursa.
Every thing we saw, was amazing.
The Museum, is a great combinition of Turkish & Islamic Heritage.
Is any thing missing in my View?

I had high expectations about these museum, but they were not met. The building itself is beautiful, very close to the Green Mosque, but the museum it self had not so many pieces and looked very abandoned. We were the only ones inside for the whole time we stayed there.
The 5 TL are worth only for the architecture.

This museum is housed in a most attractive 15th century medersa connected with Yeşil Camii. In successive rooms around its large courtyard are displayed rooms of ancient ceramics, calligraphy & bookbinding, metal work, etc. The medersa has some interesting tombstones outside, and there is a nearby row of small "antique shops" to browse.

actually to be seen as one is going to the green mosque and green tomb but not that interesting material and the building really need serious restauration while it seems full of state employees doing nothing and protecting very little and not that worth it material. it is free but it better cost a little money and be in better shape
