It was founded in 1914 as the Museum of Islamic Foundations and housed in the Imaret building of the Süleymaniye Complex, built by the great Turkish architect Sinan in the 16th century. The museum was renamed the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts after the declaration of the republic and moved to its present location in the 16th-century Ibrahim Paşa Palace in 1983. The core collection of the museum comprises Islamic artworks collected from across the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th century.

The history of Ankara's first museum dates back to 1921. With Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s idea of establishing an Hittite Museum in the center of the country, Hittite art works were collected from all over the country. The Museum Anatolian Civilizations is located in the district called Atpazari ("the horse market") to the south of Ankara Castle. The Museum occupies two Ottoman buildings which have been renovated and altered to suit their new role. One of them is the Mahmud Pasha Bedesten and the other is the Kursunlu Han. The Anatolian Civilizations Museum is among the leading museums of the world on account of its unique collections of material. The archaeology of Anatolia from the Palaeolithic Age to the present day is displayed by periods in chronological order in the pleasant ambience of Ottoman surroundings. Museum of Anatolian Civilizations was elected as the first "European Museum of the Year" in Switzerland on April 19, 1997.
