Vehbi Koç Foundation's Sadberk Hanım Museum opened on 14 October 1980 as Turkey's first private museum. From nearly three thousand objects at its inauguration, the museum collections have grown to over twenty thousand today. The museum is dedicated to passing on the country's cultural heritage to future generations and through its programme of activities and events contributing to the scientific and educational development of society. The museum's Archaeological Section, which is housed in the Sevgi Gönül Building, consists of examples of material culture belonging to all the civilization that have flourished in Anatolia from the 6th millennium BC to the end of the Byzantine period. The Turkish-Islamic Art Section, consisting predominantly of Ottoman period items, is housed in the Azaryan Mansion, and includes objects produced in Europe, the Far East and Near East for the Ottoman market, as well as Ottoman textiles, costume and embroidery.
