Museum İCAF – Archaeology and Ethnography

The largest building, which is the identity of İzmir Culture and Arts Factory and served as the production center in the center of the historical Alsancak Tekel Factory, was transformed into Museum İCAF – the Archaeology and Ethnography Museum after careful restoration and renovation works carried out in accordance with the original.

Archaeological artifacts are displayed on the ground and first floors of the 7,240-square-meter, two-story building, and ethnographic artifacts on the second floor. The museum, which displays gold, metal, marble, terracotta, stone and glass works from the region, as well as historical textiles and unique manuscripts, invites visitors of all ages to take a pleasant historical and cultural journey through the past centuries, with thematic exhibitions reflecting the museology understanding of the new generation.
