The Erimtan Archaeology and Arts Museum houses a diverse collection of artifacts unearthed in Anatolia.

The collection was born out of the decades-long passion that Yüksel Erimtan has for archaeology. A civil engineer by training, Yüksel Erimtan began acquiring archaeological artifacts in the 1960s while working on construction projects in the south of Turkey near the city of Tarsus. Ancient jewelry comprised the first pieces of his collection. Working closely with qualified archaeologists, he began widening his collection by focusing on coins, seal stones, glass, and ceramic objects.

The Erimtan Collection is a private archaeology collection that consists of nearly two thousand portable artifacts under the supervision of the Anatolian Civilizations Museum.

Almost all of the artifacts have an Anatolian origin. Although the collection covers a period of time extending from three thousand BC to the Byzantine times, the artifacts mainly belong to Roman periods.

Glass artifacts (bottles, cups, jars, glasses, fewer bracelets, and rings), gems, and coins (golden, silver, bronze belong to Hellenistic-Roman and Byzantine Periods) are the outstanding groups among the collection.
