The Mosaic Museum is located next to the Arasta bazaar in the Eminenu district. In 1933, fragments of a floor covered with mosaics were accidentally noticed at this place. During archaeological excavations, which lasted from 1935 to 1954, an open courtyard was discovered here, surrounded on all sides by columns.
The area of this courtyard was about 2 000 square meters. It was once part of the Great Imperial Palace of Constantinople. The mosaic museum arose on the territory where the excavations were carried out.
The exposition of the mosaic museum includes the most interesting exhibits, some of which date back to the 5th-6th centuries of our era.
