It is the perfect place to get lost in Istanbul if you're there at Easter week. It is much quieter than the Santa Sofia and the Blue Mosque, despite its close proximity. The museum is inside the Topkapi Palace complex, which is composed of three buildings of different sizes. In the larger one you can find the collections of Mesopotamian and Babylonian art that impressed and fascinated me the most. The museum is organized with a sensitivity and delicacy that I have not seen anywhere else with the same category and importance. The Athens' one seems like a building in the process of demolition, and Cairo's looks like a warehouse for furniture-storage.
