ⓘ Mersin State Art and Sculpture Museum

Mersin State Art and Sculpture Museum is a museum in Mersin, Turkey. The museum is in the centrum at 36°47′56″N 34°37′47″E. It is in a neighborhood known for galleries and Art Club of Içel.

The construction date of the building is not known. Probably it was an inn for the villagers in the early days of Mersin. There were stables in the ground floor. Later it was converted to a hotel and was purchased by a family from Gulnar ilçe district. They named the hotel Gulnar Oteli "Hotel Gulnar". During the age of modern hotels, Hotel Gulnar was closed and was left alone for about twenty years. With the support of Istemihan Talay, the minister of Culture between 1997-1999, the building was acquired by the government. Following a restoration project, in 2002, it was opened as a state art and sculpture museum. The ground floor is the gallery and the upper floor is reserved for the office and the meeting room.

The construction material of the two storey building is cut stone. Corbels were made by lath and plaster method.
