Bursa Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art

Yeşil Complex Wikipedia:Stub Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum

The Bursa Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art (Turkish: Bursa Türk ve İslam Eserleri Müzesi) is a museum located in the former medrese of Yeşil Complex, which was constructed within the order of the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed I in 1419.

History

The history of the museum dates back to 1904 when the first museum in Bursa was founded at Bursa Boys' Highschool to exhibit Islamic/Ottoman relics and archeological foundings which were unearthed within city's administrative boundaries. In 1929, the exhibit was moved to the present-day location of Bursa Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art. With a new building being prepared for the archeological displays in 1971, the original place within the Yeşil Complex remained a museum for Turkish and Islamic art.[1]
