Kayseri Selçuklu Museum (Gevher Nesibe Tıp Tarihi Müzesi)

Kayseri - Where to see

Gevher Nesibe Hospital and Gıyasiye Madrasa, also known as “Çifte Madrasa”, was built by his brother I Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev in the years 1205-1206, upon the will of Gülü Nesibe Sultan, daughter of II Kılıçarslan. Standing out with its plain architecture, the complex is one of the most important structures in the history of Anatolian architecture.

It was used as a History of Medicine Museum by Erciyes University since the 1980s. In 2012, the use of Çifte Madrasah was transferred to the Metropolitan Municipality. After that, the works for establishing the Seljuk Museum started.
Small repairs in the building, especially the roof, the creation of the museum collection and the preparation of its content continued for 2 years. Finally, this monument, which is an important part of the local and universal cultural heritage as well as its historical and imaginary value for the city, was created. It was turned into a museum by the Metropolitan Municipality, which was transformed into a museum introducing the Anatolian Seljuk world in different aspects, and opened on February 21, 2014.
Based on the history of the city, the museum is focused on Anatolian medieval times and the Seljuk Civilization and is planned with a thematic approach. In one part, the museum emphasizes the civilization about the Seljuk Civilization, and the other part brings the feature of healing to the fore.
