Mardin - Where to see Museums

The building housing the Sakıp Sabancı Mardin City Museum and Dilek Sabancı Art Gallery was commissioned during the reign of Sultan Abdülhamid II (r.1876-1909) by the Governor of Diyarbakır Hacı Hasan Paşa in 1889 as a cavalry barracks and served that function for many years. The architect, Sarkis Elyas Lole was of Armenian origin.

At every stage until the opening of the museum to visitors, Istanbul Sakıp Sabancı Museum’s experts, the Office of the Governor of Mardin, the Mardin Municipality, MAREV Foundation and the people of Mardin have contributed significantly to the success of the project.

Today Sakıp Sabancı Mardin City Museum which is a private museum affiliated to Sabanci Foundation presents a versatile museum environment with its permanent collection, educational programs, conferences and seminars aimed at showing and promoting the urban structure and culture of Mardin, while the Dilek Sabancı Art Gallery strives to constitute a modern and contemporary art platform with temporary exhibitions.
