Ismail Kumartaşlı Egg and Arts Centre

The Center is designed as a museum and as a sectoral promotion centre. Within the frame of eggs and egg art, the center displays eggs from 240 different species produced by 37 producers in 22 cities of Turkey. You will also find around 100 artistically processed real egg samples of many wild animals, including sharks, loggerhead sea turtle, snakes, and locusts.

Additionally you can see records and documents obtained from the Turkish Poultry and Egg Production Sector on display here too! All these eggs were taken from dead embryos not live ones (the Centre was built before people realized that this practice could be harmful). It's quite an interesting place!
