comment from one of guests:   … had a terrific time learning, as well as experiencing, the cultural aspects of Turkey last night. I learned so many facts, tried some delicious dishes, and met some truly wonderful people. The Cultural Museum is such a magnificent and magical place. Each visit I feel renewed, refreshed, and enlightened.
