Traveling with children can sometimes be difficult, but Ankara is definitely a city that has lots of activities that are both fun and educational for kids and their parents. From museums to amusement parks, Culture Trip rounded up the best activities for families with children.

1. The Amusement Park at Gençlik Parkı

Amusement Park

One of the city’s oldest parks is also one of the most colorful because of its amusement park where the vibrant lights promise a good time for children and their parents. From the giant Ferris wheel to the rollercoasters, there are plenty of fun rides and activities that’ll keep kids occupied and happy for hours.

2. Ankara University’s Toy Museum


Ankara University’s Toy Museum was established in 1990 to protect antique and traditional toys that have been all but forgotten in Turkey’s rapidly developing culture. Local or international, manufactured or handmade, the museum has 2,000 toys that children will find fascinating.

3. Aqua Vega Aquarium


Located below the Nata Vega Outlet Mall, the Aqua Vega Aquarium is an exciting place for kids who have an interest in marine life. Apart from the tunnel displaying 12,000 kinds of underwater life, kids can also watch the shark-feeding hour or touch the koi in a special pool.
