The area known today as Eskişehir, has been a settlement site since 3000 BCE. Ruled by the Hittites, Phrygians, Lydians, Persians, Romans, and the Byzantines, it flourished under the Seljuks and ultimately, the Ottomans.

After Turkey was declared a republic, Eskişehir gained the status of province in 1925. Today, Eskişehir is one of the most liveable cities in Turkey with its human-centric governance, students making up the 15% of the total population, museums, parks and arts and culture events organized throughout the year.

Positioned in one of Turkey’s most progressive cities, Eskişehir, OMM is located in Odunpazarı, which is in the UNESCO Tentative World Cultural Heritage List.
