MARAŞ ARCHAEOLOGY MUSEUM
TRAVEL BACK TO
3,000 YEARS AGO AND OBSERVE THE ELEPHANTS OR GET LOST IN A CAVE FROM THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
When the visitors first walk into the room, they see the bones in front of the dry bottom of the lake, afterwards, with a sudden flash of light visitors move backwards in time 3000 years ago, when the elephants were still alive in Maras region. Apart from the elephants, deers, birds and fish also move in interaction with each other. The virtual scenery of the lake is not a video, it is a 3D life simulation.
In addition, a section from the life of a caveman is shown with a projection system in the artificial cave inside the museum. Apart from that, a mother goddess figurine is presented as a hologram towards the end of the cave. The relic shown with the hologram technology belongs to 10.700 B.C. and is accepted as the oldest baked mother goddess figurine in Anatolia and Asia Minor.
